Robert Morris Experiential College
Offered in: Chicago | Schaumburg
The Robert Morris Experiential College offers in-demand, career-focused programs. Curriculum within the Experiential College is supported by experiential learning, both inside and outside the classroom, that provides students the opportunity to acquire necessary job-related skills through hands-on experience. Immersive learning opportunities also allow students to add to their resumes while still in school, positioning them as attractive job candidates who have already demonstrated career-readiness through internships, service learning, clinical, and additional experiential opportunities. After each experience, students reflect on the learning outcomes and connect how the skills gained in the experience will apply to future academic, personal, and professional goals. These experiences provide students the transferable skills necessary to meet the expectations and demands of employers.
