Experiential Education at Rowan University 

At Rowan University, experiential education is an essential component of a well-rounded education, and we are committed to providing our students with a wide range of opportunities to engage in experiential learning. Through these experiences, our students develop the skills, knowledge, and confidence they need to succeed in their chosen fields and positively impact their communities and the world.

Experiential education is a teaching and learning approach that emphasizes hands-on, real-world experiences to gain knowledge, develop skills, and build personal and professional competencies. It involves active engagement in meaningful, relevant, and challenging activities that enable students to apply what they have learned in the classroom to real-world settings and reflect on their experiences to deepen their understanding and improve their performance.

Experiential education can take many forms, including internships, co-op programs, service learning, study abroad, research projects, simulations, and community-based learning. It is characterized by a focus on learning by doing, a commitment to reflection and self-awareness, and an emphasis on collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking.
