Directed Experiential Ed (DEE) Courses

DEE3999 Directed Experiential Education

Directed Experiential Education (DEE) offers students an intensive, term-long, project-based experiential learning opportunity conducted under the supervision of a faculty member. Experiences are driven by a specific industry-based or functional-area-based project completed for a nonprofit or for-profit DEE partner. Through weekly group seminar meetings, extensive field work (independent and/or group-based) and purposeful reflection, students apply acquired discipline-specific skills and knowledge, develop leadership and collaborative abilities, and refine critical thinking, problem-solving and active citizenship skills. The course culminates in a formal presentation to the DEE partner. This course is recognized as an Experiential Education (EE) course, indicating that experiential learning is used as a primary method of achieving the course objectives. Students can take up to three terms of this course at 4.5 credits per term.
