The Center for Liberal Arts in the World helps students identify and pursue opportunities outside of the classroom, and to better articulate the value of these opportunities as part of a Holy Cross education.
Experiential learning — the process of learning by doing — is an essential element of a liberal arts education; it transforms students from knowledge consumers to knowledge producers. It also helps students to adjust their trajectory through college, as hands-on experiences provide feedback about their vocational aspirations.
Liberal Arts in the World is the central hub for experiential learning at Holy Cross. Whether it is an internship, a community-based learning course, or a research project, each Holy Cross student should be looking for opportunities to move their education off campus, and to integrate the classroom with the global community.
