Faculty-Led; Off-Campus Courses
The S&T student experience is not limited to the classroom — we strive to provide options for students to experience learning at many off-campus locations both in the United States and abroad.
The PCE Office works with a number of forward-thinking departments in offering its students off-campus, experiential learning courses. These faculty-led courses integrate classroom theory with practical application. For example: we have students who study architectural history in Chicago; take geology field camp excursions out west; learn intercultural communications in Peru; or immerse themselves in history and literature while traveling throughout Europe.
