Experiential learning is an active process whereby students build upon their liberal arts education through real-world, application-based experiences. 

Internships, independent study, and research are all examples of robust experiential learning that allow you to deepen your understanding of academic disciplines and gain a variety of other real-world skills and positive work habits. These experiences, especially internships, rank high on the list of what employers want to see in graduates seeking employment.
