Experiential Learning Courses

Many students gain significant research experience through one of our experiential learning courses. These are outside-the-classroom experiences where students may obtain course credit while gaining experience in a real-world setting. Many students obtain their experiential learning credits by volunteering their time to work alongside experienced researchers in a Dal lab, an industrial lab or a government lab.

Students interested in an experiential learning course must first contact an undergraduate advisor in the department offering the course. See departmental webpages for list of advisors.
