Experiential Education

Whether through participating in internships, conducting research, serving in the community, studying abroad or leading campus organizations, students who learn by doing learn more effectively. The University of Tampa has a long history of valuing experiential education. A balanced approach toward theory and practice starts at new-student orientation and extends beyond graduation. UT keeps classes small, fosters individual attention from faculty and emphasizes active learning in the classroom and field research outside it, creating an environment where education through application thrives.

Building on the strengths of experiential education, The University of Tampa has committed to further improvement through "Learning by Doing: Inquiry-based Experiential Education." This campus-wide initiative will provide students more opportunities to engage in practical, inquiry-based experiential practices. Learn more at
