Curriculum-Integrated Experiential Learning

The Faculty of Arts & Science offers students a range of course-based experiential learning opportunities across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, including organization-partnered projects, field experiences, academic internships, research-based projects, and professional work terms. We invite industry and community organizations to participate in these curricular experiential learning opportunities that are designed to both enhance student learning and advance partner priorities. Arts & Science students are culturally competent, collaborative, adaptable, creative, have strong analytical and critical thinking skills, and are eager to engage and solve problems with industry and community organizations.
