Experiential + Immersive Learning

Experiential + Immersive Learning is the process of learning through experience, and applying what you’ve learned in an active environment. You develop knowledge, skills, and values from direct experiences outside a traditional academic setting.

At WPU, we think it’s important that you broaden your horizons. Sometimes that means pushing you out of your comfort zone, but for good reason and one goal in mind – to make you a better overall student. This will better prepare you for graduate school, your next career, and a more purposeful life.
