Experiential Learning 

Experiential learning engages students in critical thinking, problem solving and decision making in an on-the-job assignment which is relevant to the student’s field of study. It is consistent with the college’s Mission Statement, “To provide high quality and affordable educational opportunities and services ….that promote individual development and improve the overall quality of life…”

Job Shadowing
Job Shadowing is an educational activity in which students spend time learning about a specific job or industry. They interact with professionals on the job while observing actual operations and procedures and gain an understanding of the company’s culture. The primary focus is to explore potential career interests.

Job Shadowing is for observation ONLY! It is an informative opportunity to gain valuable information about potential career paths and fields of study that might be suitable for them to pursue.

Job Shadowing is a great way to align educational and career goals.




Cooperative Education (Co-op)
A co-op opportunity gives students an edge by providing them with hands-on learning experience through job assignments related to their field. Not only is a job assignment vital to a student’s marketability, but it allows you to use what is learned in the classroom. Real world experience provides insight to career paths and job opportunities. In addition to being compensated, as in a regular work assignment, the student can earn one college credit for each 180 hours worked, up to three credits per semester.
