Experiential Learning is an essential aspect of Missouri S&T's unique learning environment.  Our Strategic Plan defines that 100% of our undergraduate students must graduate with a significant experiential learning experience. Experiential Learning at Missouri S&T refers to learning stimulated by a variety of structured activities that differ significantly from the traditional lecture format.  Experiential learning activities are designed to require students to go beyond mastering basic skills and knowledge in the application of that material to problem solving challenges.  These activities involve collaboration and reflective learning and allow students to learn in environments that align with their aptitudes. Students will work with their academic advisor to develop a plan to complete this graduation requirement.
