Experiential Learning includes many ways of gaining real world experience between a student and a business or organization and can take many different forms including the following:

  • Job shadowing/Externship – typically an unpaid job shadowing experience
  • Internship– work for a defined period of time in order to gain work experience
  • Project work completed for a business or organization (individual or group)
  • Capstone project -a multi-faceted project that serves as a culminating academic and intellectual experience
  • Cooperative experience - a structured method of combining classroom-based education with practical work experience. A cooperative education experience, commonly known as a "co-op", provides academic credit for structured job experience.
