As of Fall 2012, all undergraduate students are required to complete at least one Engaged Learning course/s totaling at least three (3) credit hours prior to graduation.

The criteria to define Engaged Learning courses are those that provide all of the following:

  • A structured learning experience integrated into a course that engages students in learning outside the classroom, such as in a community agency, professional organization, or in a research setting;
  • Critical reflection on that experience through various assignments in class; and
  • Synthesis of the experience through a final project or portfolio.
