Experiential Learning

“Give the pupils something to do, not something to learn; and the doing is of such a nature as to demand thinking; learning naturally results.”
John Dewey

 

Learning is an active process. Students need to explore topics from all angles, apply concepts, and bring classroom work to life through real-world experience.

Being in the heart of University Circle, exploration and application are just footsteps away in some of the most prestigious cultural institutions in the country. Students have worked with leaders in archeology, the arts, ethics, medicine, and astronomy through their regular coursework.

This work gives students a chance to see their own ability to make an impact in the world through their talents, skills, and knowledge. Students experience their agency in even greater ways through a two-year committed internship program and student-led intensive, or experiential, terms.
