Experiential Learning

Experiential learning is about students applying their knowledge and conceptual understanding to real-world problems and authentic situations.  The classroom, internships, undergraduate research, or study abroad can all serve as settings for experiential learning and can be powerful in deepening knowledge, developing skills, and supporting new understanding of people and situations. 

Public Health Majors are encouraged to engage in experiential learning and structured experiences which earn academic credit may apply toward elective credit.  Consult a Public Health Adviser for more information.
