Becoming a leader in Experiential Education (ExEd) is one of the four strategic directions of the University and we are well on our way to realize that goal. Our students can participate in ExEd in one or more of the following pillars of ExEd as identified by the University Experiential Education team:

  1. Internship
  2. Academic Service Learning
  3. International / Field Study
  4. Faculty Mentored Undergraduate Research

The ExEd programs adhere to and operate on the principles of standard practice as set forth by the National Society of Experiential Education (NSEE). The University of New Haven is the Northeast affiliate site of the NSEE and we have the largest number of certified Experiential Education faculty in the country. 

The undergraduate students in the Tagliatela College of Engineering have traditionally participated in experiential learning in one form or another making them much sought after by the area employers.

Our students can participate in the internship program administered through the College of Engineering. The Internship program enables students to combine academics with practical, paid work experiences in their chosen career fields.
