As a Drew student, you’ll complete at least two Immersive Experiences. These Experiences could include: an internship, a full-semester domestic or international off-campus program, a short TREC experience, a community-based learning course, a mentored research, civic, or creative project, or participation in a mentored leadership position. Immersive Experiences are concrete, real-world applications of your learning and development designed to help them explore opportunities and prepare for their futures. You’ll leave Drew with the meaningful experience preferred by 94% of employers hiring new college grads.
Finding an Immersive Experience
Drew offers hundreds of Immersive Experiences and is constantly adding new ones. From internships to community-based learning courses, TRECs to research, there’s something for everyone in our searchable database.
Seeking Immersive Experience Approval
Some experiences that students may have don’t fit neatly into an established category of Immersive Experience. Students should seek pre-approval to determine if these experiences qualify as immersive experiences.
Immersive Experience Examples
Drew students have completed a wide variety of Immersive Experiences, many of which have been showcased at our annual Immersive Experiences Fair.
Propose an Immersive Experience
Drew faculty and staff are welcome to propose new Immersive Experiences at any time throughout the academic year. Proposals are reviewed by the Curriculum and Academic Planning Committee (CAPC) regularly.
