Experiential Education (EE) gives students the opportunity to apply theories learned in the classroom to concrete experiences. These experiences can occur within a course, community, or work/professional setting. The goal of EE is to deepen the learning objectives of a course or program, allowing students to better retain their knowledge of new concepts and be better prepared for life after graduation.
“Co-op has changed my perspective of outreach and I hope it will be a part of my future career. This experience has encouraged me to apply for graduate studies to enhance my knowledge and skills in the field. Co-op is a great way to gain practical experience and determine if you are in the right field”
