Experiential learning in the EPDM department provides a unique combination of classroom learning and real-world experiences. Students develop essential life and professional skills, lasting connections and network opportunities, and enjoy the rich environment in the Puget Sound region and beyond.
Many of our experiential learning courses focus on local instruction and issues, but many also explore far corners of the nation - and even the globe. A glance at our experiential learning offerings reveals many field school and summer research opportunities, environmentally centered internships or block programs (such as the Southwest Semester), and multiple quarter-credit courses that encourage students to directly involve themselves in the local community.
