Experiential learning is proven to be transformational in terms of student learning both about themselves and their place in the world. All Sustainability degree students are required to complete 3 credits of a Sustainability Practicum. A Practicum could take the form of an internship (SUS 410), a faculty-sponsored research project (SUS 401), or be a part of educational experiences such as Faculty-Led Trips Abroad, Alternative Break Trips or other international educational experience.
