Experiential learning is a process through which students learn through action, experience, by doing, through exploration. Students develop knowledge, skills, and values from direct experiences outside a traditional academic setting. Experiential learning encompasses a variety of activities including internships and service learning.
What is the difference between an internship and service learning?
An internship is a short-term work experience that is intended to expose you to a career field of interest while offering you the ability to acquire professional experience. Internships are administered by the individual organization desiring interns; therefore, their structure and policies will vary. Internships may last anywhere from a few weeks to a semester to a full year; they may be full or part-time; and they may be paid or volunteer positions.

Service-learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service opportunities into a student’s coursework. Students are able to become active participants in the learning process by using what they learn in the classroom to solve real-life problems.
