Experiential Learning

Archaeologists using brushes on a dig to find artifactsIt's a simple concept - when you learn by doing, you learn differently. You learn more. You learn beyond subject matter – you also learn about yourself.

At UGA, we couldn’t agree more. We’re passionate about the promise of Experiential Learning, and we believe it’s a foundational part of the college experience and beyond. We believe hands-on experiences inform, transform, and unlock the true potential of higher education and prepare students to succeed in an ever-changing world.

Experiences outside the classroom are part of a powerful learning cycle that expands, stretches and enhances academic foundations to create a whole new level of awareness and understanding. It’s a proving ground where students commit to exploring, discovering, and defining how what they learn will shape who they become and what they do next.

In the Department of Anthropology we have many different experiential opportunities for you to explore:
