Applied Studies Opportunities

Experiential Learning and Service Learning   

Applied study is an opportunity to include an internship, work experience or travel in your academic pursuit.   Additionally, service learning allows students to provide meaningful service in their communities.  Both offer an opportunity to explore the connection between academic theory and the practical needs of the work and community.   The Applied Study office assists students in developing these study opportunities.
