Alma College features robust experiential learning options for students that allow you to gain real-world experiences outside of the traditional classroom environment in unique settings around the world. Where will you venture?
College is a great place to explore new things, to figure out who you are or who you want to be.
At Alma, we believe your college experience should include the opportunity to pursue something you care deeply about or maybe just to step out of your comfort zone and try something you never imagined.
As part of the Alma Commitment, every student will have an experiential learning opportunity that meets their personal or professional goals, funded by an Alma Venture grant or one of several other college-sponsored grant programs. You will have up to $2,500 to put your classroom learning into practice through a remarkable internship, research fellowship, hands-on clinical experience, off-campus study, campus leadership opportunity or another approved learning experience.
Why have we made this financial commitment? Because we want you to graduate with practical experiences that will prepare you for life after college. So check out the options below and find your adventure.
Alma has a 4-4-1 academic calendar, so after fall and winter terms, you have the opportunity to focus on one course topic for the entire month of May. We call this month “Spring Term,” and many of the courses involve domestic or international travel.
