Experiential Learning

The study of humanities focuses on introspection, analysis, and critical thinking—but our discipline also offers diverse opportunities for experiential learning outside the classroom. By getting out into the world and experiencing different cultures, students can gain a more well-rounded understanding of the field while developing practical job skills.
