Make the whole world your classroom. Expand your studies outside the classroom and get real life experience. In our department, you’ll find many opportunities to get practical work training, meet peers in and outside your program, learn new skills and just have fun. Whether you choose to engage on campus or in the community, you’ll gain experience while having new experiences.
Students have the opportunity to connect and apply theories covered in class with hands-on community-based projects in our capstone courses.
