NLU requires all students to complete an experiential learning experience outside of class for their degree based on their major (for example an internship or field experience hours). For most majors, this requirement can be completed during the junior or senior year. Education, Social Work, Human Services, and Hospitality majors will have multiple terms of field experience hours required starting as early as their sophomore year. Refer to your 4-year academic plan and your Coach for your specific requirements.
