Experiential (Hands On) Learning Opportunities

Experiential learning means hands-on learning, or taking what you have learned in the classroom and applying it to real work situations. This can be through internships, externships, volunteering, case studies, project work and more. These experiences can be added to your résumé to show employers your skills.
