UT students turn ideas into reality while developing key skills, such as critical thinking, communication and collaboration.
Experiential education allows students to use the theories and skills gained in the classroom to solve real-world problems, giving them an edge on the competition for jobs and graduate school.
UT emphasizes active learning in the classroom and field research outside it, allowing students to act on what they have learned. Students who learn by doing, learn more effectively.
Learning by Doing: Inquiry-based Experiential Education is a campus-wide initiative to increase the practical and real-world opportunities for UT students. The initiative satisfies a requirement of UT’s accrediting agency, the Southern Association of College and Schools Commission on Colleges.
