Imagine travelling to Guatemala and working with local Indigenous communities or building a robot in your class? How about taking on the role of a political leader and engaging in a class simulation about the impacts of climate change? Imagine being part of a class that helps build a traditional Dakelh style pit house, or a class that works with the community to build a local greenhouse?

All of these opportunities and more are available to you at UNBC. Across the university there are classes specifically designed for you to apply your knowledge and reflect on your learning through experiences inside and outside the classroom.

Through experiential learning you will engage in practices that connect you to the world, hone your skills in real life settings, and see your learning in action.
