Bowling Green State University aspires to be an institution that is distinguished by the rich opportunities available for students to participate in experiential learning. These opportunities occur inside and outside of the formal classroom setting.
The Kuhlin Hub for Career Design and Connections oversees the following types of experiences:
A clinical laboratory applies only to health technology programs. A clinical is a laboratory section that meets at a health-related agency facility in lieu of on-campus laboratory facilities. Clinical laboratory sessions provide a realistic environment for student learning.
Co-op (Cooperative Education)
A co-op alternates or combines semesters of academic study with work experience in appropriate fields as an integral part of degree-plan completion and involves a partnership among students, BGSU, and employers that formally integrates students’ academic study with work experience in cooperating employer organizations.
A zero-credit transcript notation available to students completing an internship or co-op.
An internship is a repeatable, variable credit-based experience (at least 3 credit hours), typically graded S/U that involves a partnership among students, BGSU, and employers that formally integrates a student’s academic study with work or community service experience.
A practicum is an on- or off-campus work experience that is integrated with academic instruction in which the student applies concurrently learned concepts to practical situations within an occupational field.
