Experiential Learning in H&S
Experiential learning takes place when students are given the opportunity to take knowledge learned in the classroom out into the world, where they challenge themselves to put that knowledge to work and to see it in action. These kinds of opportunities take place on study trips abroad or in the United States; in research environments both in the laboratory and in the field; in professional internships; and in community-based service learning projects undertaken in the context of academic courses in H&S.
A faculty Steering Committee for Experiential Learning, established in 2011, oversees the development of experiential learning curricular opportunities in the School.
