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). 

Use the links in this section to see which experiences have been approved for majors in your college or school! You can also see a list of blanket statements from each college for experiences such as research, service-learning, and study away.
