The College of Education, Health, and Society seeks to provide an immersive and interactive experience for students. Here at EHS, our students are encouraged to explore ways in which they may learn through direct experience via internships, study abroad, undergraduate research, and other experiential learning options, which offer valuable opportunities to apply classroom knowledge to real-world situations.
We heavily emphasize experiential learning as an essential component of the EHS experience so that students may gain:
- Broader perspectives regarding the communities in which they live and work
- Real-world competence
- Connections to EHS’s mission to “prepare graduates to generate knowledge, educate, serve and promote well-being in diverse and global settings through ethical, democratic practices” and to the Core Values.
Experiential learning connects higher education to the growing needs of society by providing programs of public service that allow students to understand what it takes to be a positive force in their communities.
