Many programs require practical experience related to the academic field of study. Examples of this work range from students in the Environmental Studies program helping local towns protect drinking water supplies to psychologists-in-training offering low-cost counseling services to those in need.
AUNE’s practice-based programs help students integrate their academic knowledge with professional experiences. These hands-on projects are valuable for career development and superb résumé builders.
“The classes here are never just about gaining knowledge. They incorporate exercises that require the application of the concepts learned. It becomes true knowledge as opposed to memorized facts.” Liz Newman, Environmental Advocacy Student
