Welcome to Experiential Learning!
Experiential Learning is an elective course that requires the student to perform 140 documented hours of volunteer service in one professional office, agency, or institution. The service is performed from October to May. The class meets at specified times designated by the instructor. Students are required to maintain a journal, a log of completed hours and complete an exit project on the experience. Topics covered during class meetings will include journal writing, professionalism, understanding group dynamics and problem solving. In this course, students will acquire knowledge and skills to (1) connect curricular knowledge and skills to their own lives and the lives of others; (2) demonstrate active and responsible citizenship through participating as a productive member of a professional community; and (3) think, talk and write about their experiences in a professional setting.
