Experiential Learning (EL)

The Bradley Core Curriculum recommends that students participate in two or more courses or registered experiences that have been designated as Experiential Learning (EL)*. Experiential Learning is a high impact practice that is at the heart of the Bradley Experience. Students will learn to apply knowledge, skills and dispositions to real-world applications within and beyond the classroom. These activities provide students with an awareness and appreciation of their growing ability to apply learning to problems that will be encountered after Bradley. Experiential Learning commonly encompasses a variety of experiences that can include service learning, study abroad, supervised research or creative production, capstone experiences, or supervised internships and practical experiences. Additional manifestations of Experiential Learning may be approved.

*Students who entered Bradley in the 2017-18 academic year who have received academic credit for Integrative Learning (IL) tags will be automatically granted EL tags for those courses or experiences.
