What is an Experience Workshop?

  • The purpose of attending an Experience Workshop is for the student to learn about the Major they are most interested in and to get a sense of our unique curriculum.
  • Attending an Experience Workshop is optional, but is a highly recommended opportunity to experience our program firsthand.
