Additional Learning Opportunities

Experiential Learning

Experiential learning involves a process of learning, doing, and reflecting and provides you with the opportunity to acquire first-hand experience. Experiential learning will empower you to connect ideas and experiences from a variety of contexts, synthesizing and transferring what you have learned in the classroom to situations beyond the classroom. As a Stevenson student, you are offered a variety of experiential learning opportunities, including internships, service-learning, undergraduate research, clinical experiences and practicums, as well as international and off-campus study.

International and Off-Campus Study

Stevenson University offers exciting international and domestic study opportunities for academic credit. Students can choose from SU faculty-led travel courses or approved "SU in" and
affiliate programs in a variety of countries around the world, including the United States. Internships and service-learning options are also available. Terms include fall and/or spring semester, Winterim, summer and spring break. Participation requires an application be submitted by stated deadlines. Costs vary, with many options allowing financial aid and scholarships to be applied. It is recommended that students confer with their academic advisors early on in their time at SU to plan an international or domestic study experience into their overall academic program. Engaging in off-campus programs directly enhances Stevenson’s mission to graduate students with the competence and confidence needed to address creatively the opportunities and problems facing their communities, the nation, and the world.

Questions regarding International and Off-Campus study should be directed to the Office of International and Off-Campus Study. studyabroad@stevenson.edu. For more information, please see the Office of International and Off-Campus Study's portal page or the SUGlobal site at Study Abroad at Stevenson.

Internships

All majors at Stevenson require students to participate in at least one internship or career-focused capstone or experiential learning course. Consult each program section in the Fields of Study section of this catalog for more detailed information.

Students can also explore internship opportunities through Handshake, an online employment database maintained by Career Services. The Career Services staff is available to assist students with resume and cover letter writing and interview preparation skills, as well as techniques for searching for internships. Internships.com is another resource available through Blackboard. All credit-bearing internships must be approved by the appropriate program coordinator, department chair, associate dean, or school dean. Students must secure an internship and register for the coordinating course prior to the semester in which they plan to complete the internship.
