Experiential learning is the process of developing knowledge and skill from direct active experiences beyond a traditional classroom. Through experiential learning activities, students reflect on how the tools and techniques taught in an academic setting transfer to a real world setting and bring this understanding back to the classroom through concrete examples and meaningful conversations. Experiential learning typically involves a significant activity which offers students a chance to reflect on their curricular learning, gain an overall understanding of their future work environment and create the foundation for success after graduation. Experiential learning activities offer students rich opportunities to understand the implications and experience the consequences of their decisions, deepen their understanding of the curricular content as well as understand the role of personal values in their decision making. All undergraduate students majoring in business must complete two significant experiential learning activities as a requirement for graduation.
For an activity to satisfy the experiential learning requirement, it must:
- Have scope. It must represent a significant investment of time and effort on the part of the student.
- Demonstrate rigor. It must entail a noteworthy interaction with college-level academic thought.
- Promote reflection. It must involve personal application by the student of classroom material.
Many courses and co-curricular activities are pre-approved as satisfying the experiential learning requirement. Students may also petition for special approval of additional activities.
Co-Curricular/Cultural Attendance Requirements
In addition to all academic requirements, students are required, for graduation, to complete 24 events. The Dean’s Office provides a list of approved events each semester. Students may also view the list of co-curricular events under Calendar of Events at www.stetson.edu.
