Immersive learning is a teaching method where students participate in their own learning via field trips, research, outreach, collaborating, hands-on activities, guest speakers, and inquiry-based lessons. The NSU Geography program incorporates these methods into its courses. Majors and non-majors will experience learning through a variety of methods.
