International & Experiential Learning

"Our mission is to prepare our students to lead purposeful and fulfilling lives in a global society by providing the highest-quality education through experiential, collaborative, and discovery-based learning."

The University of New Haven is a leader in experiential education.

Many of our programs offer students the opportunity for education "out of the box" and out of the classroom, enriched by discovery and reflection: in the lab, in the community, across borders.

Experiential Learning expresses the breadth of our mission: in and out of the classroom; formal and informal learning; sometimes for academic credit and sometimes not; mentored by our faculty or initiated by our students themselves. All University of New Haven undergraduates complete either: academic service-learning, study abroad, an internship, or faculty-mentored research. Some students will earn honors in University of New Haven's Society for Experiential Education.  Learn more about the University of New Haven's Experiential Education Degree Requirement.
