However you define success, let us help you achieve it!

Welcome to FASS-EX, Dalhousie University’s Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) Experiential Learning site. Take a look through the opportunities that will allow you to build on what you're learning in the classroom. We call these opportunities experiential learning or EL, because they're all about lived experience. From community projects and in-class simulations to live performances and global exchanges, EL is your chance to develop the know-how you’ll need to make a difference.
