At Wells, experience is required.
How do you connect the dots between what you learn in the classroom with your life, your professional goals, and the world? With the experiential learning requirement at Wells. Unlike many colleges, experiential learning credits are mandatory for graduation, and not just reserved for your junior or senior years. From your first year with us, you will immerse yourself in exciting hands-on projects, internships, and research that enables you to test theories, develop practical skills, and gain firsthand insight into the world.

At Wells, you can earn your Experiential Learning credits in a variety of ways:
