EXPERIENTIAL EDUCATION


Experiential Education is defined as learning by doing or observing. Our office strives to expose students to employers and careers as early and as often as possible for the benefit of the student and the employer. Each college of Columbus State University works to connect students to these opportunities. The Center of Career Development is the liaison between academics and employers on behalf of the students. Contact us for additional assistance.
