Immersive Learning

At Northeastern State University, students learn, grow, and accomplish things they never imagined! They have the chance to engage with the subject matter, each other, faculty, and other members of the learning community in ways that go far beyond typical lecture – question – response patterns. We call it Immersive Learning.

Immersive learning experiences facilitate real-world approaches, require learners to synthesize knowledge and skill, and connect students to career and employment opportunities. In NSU’s immersive learning environments, students demonstrate their mastery of learning objectives and skill sets in direct and meaningful ways.

Each major is grounded in immersive learning experiences, ranging from embedded course activities, community service through major clubs, or culminating internship and capstone experiences. Whether it is the opportunity to conduct research with a faculty member, argue a case in a moot court, teach math to middle school students, help a senior prepare a tax form, or test water samples in area streams, NSU students learn to make a difference far beyond the classroom.
