Brandeis offers a variety of Experiential Learning (EL) practicum courses in all disciplines that focus on both the theoretical and experiential realms of academic topics. Practicums enable students to develop skills, knowledge, and values from practical experiences and ongoing reflection. Practicum courses include projects that can involve research, lab work, community-based learning activities, theater, or art.
The EL practicum may include hands-on experiences relevant to the base course content that engage students intellectually, creatively, socially, physically, and/or emotionally. Practicum activities present opportunities to observe, experience, or engage with the theories learned in class. Structured reflection assignments and processes will enable students to think critically about their experiences and make nuanced connections between theory and practice.
Students may not enroll in an EL practicum course as a standalone course. Practicum courses can be taken either concurrently with the base course or within one year after completing the base course. Should a student drop the base class, enrollment in the associated practicum course may be automatically dropped.
