Learning Beyond Requirement

Higher education begins in the university classroom, but it does not end there. It continues in a wide variety of learning experiences beyond the academic campus. Stevenson University values and encourages such Learning Beyond opportunities for all of its students, but the University Honors Program has a specific Learning Beyond requirement. Students are required to complete a minimum of six credits of a Learning Beyond experience. Learning Beyond experiences include, but are not limited to, field placements (e.g. internships), study abroad, service learning courses, and independent research. Honors students work closely with their advisors and the Director of the Honors Program to identify which of the many Learning Beyond opportunities best fits their major and interests.

Students in the University Honors Program may qualify for grants to cover the expenses of this program requirement. Students typically will complete this program requirement in their junior or senior year.
