Hands-on Learning

decorative edge

In addition to internships, undergraduate research, service opportunities and global studies, Eastern students also gain practical experience as Social Work majors (practica); Early Childhood Education, Education and Physical Education majors (student teaching and other clinical experiences); Art majors (art exhibitions in Eastern’s Art Gallery); and Music and Theatre majors (on- and off-campus performances).

Students also gain valuable skills in more than 700 on-campus employment opportunities. Student clubs and other on-campus experiences add to the hands-on approach to learning at Eastern.

Eastern students apply their classroom learning in the field, or under the water, as it the case of the Tropical Biology course, offered annually in the Caribbean for the past 50 years.
