From your first semester on campus through your graduate studies, it’s never too early or late to get involved in experiential learning.
A great way to start is to speak with your advisor about how to make the most of your time at UT. Ask your advisor to guide you toward courses that offer experiential learning opportunities such as fieldwork, labs, service-learning, undergraduate research, and volunteering.
Research takes place across all majors. Early in the semester, talk to your instructors about undergraduate positions they may have available within their research groups.
Talk to other students about groups or organizations they work with. You might find an unexpected opportunity to get involved!
When selecting classes, look for courses that have an experiential learning designation: a course with an S immediately following the course number indicates a service-learning course, an R indicates an undergraduate research course, and an N indicates an internship course.
