Welcome to Experiential Learning at SDSU!
The Experiential Learning Certificate (EXPL) program in the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences is committed to providing a high impact liberal arts education that allows students to grow personally, develop high-demand workforce skills, and adapt quickly to future needs.
LEARN. Knowledge - Skills - Attitudes
DO. Create - Experiment - Build - Serve
EARN. Confidence - Competence - Credentials
Experiential learning is “hands on” learning that intentionally blends classroom knowledge with real-world tasks. Learn alongside professors, professionals, community leaders and fellow students. Impact the real world, explore career pathways, and make connections that will last a lifetime as you earn your degree.
The EXPL Certificate is a fun, creative way to build hands-on learning into major and minor requirements. Students graduate with at least five experiences, an electronic portfolio, and documentation on the transcript that sets them apart.
