Experiences outside the classroom are part of a powerful learning cycle that expands, stretches and enhances academic foundations to create a whole new level of awareness and understanding. It’s a proving ground where students commit to exploring, discovering, and defining how what they learn will shape who they become and what they do next.
Experiential Learning can elevate a student’s trajectory, enhance competencies and enable opportunities, now and for years to come – that’s why it’s a (required) part of every UGA degree.
EL opportunities can be for-credit courses or non-credit activities. The activities that will satisfy a student's requirement are based on the college of their major(s).
