Applied and Experiential Learning

College is a time for students to explore, discover, and develop life-long values, interests, and abilities. The classroom experience begins by laying the framework of knowledge and skills. Experiential learning opportunities carry students one step further by encouraging them to apply academic learning beyond the campus and bring their experience back to the classroom.

Numerous types of credit-bearing experiential learning exist for students, including study abroad, service learning, field placements, independent study and research, program-specific internships, and other experiential learning opportunities offered as part of many classes. Career Services also advertises numerous non-credit internships in all disciplines through the online recruiting system, Stevenson Career Connections. Stevenson enthusiastically supports this dynamic educational philosophy.
