Academic Experiential Learning

Experiential Learning
Academic Experiential Learning includes a number of projects where the student incorporates a learning experience that takes place outside the classroom or outside the role of a typical undergraduate student. Such projects include:

Study Abroad: Many honors students take advantage of the study abroad trips and exchange programs developed and led through the Office of International Programs and Services.

Undergraduate Research Projects: These projects are outside the parameters of the Honors Thesis/Capstone Project. Independent research mentored by a faculty member and opportunities like National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates also qualify.

Peer Leaders/Peer Instructors: Students may also apply to be a Peer Leader or Peer Instructor through the First-Year Experience Office.

Undergraduate Student Teaching Assistantships: Teaching assistantships are available for academically strong and talented students. See your department for these opportunities.

Professional Development, Internship and Co-op: Internships and co-ops must be for academic credit through the student’s academic major or minor. Clinical hours for School of Nursing majors and student teaching for College of Education majors also fall under this category.
