Experiential learning

Students in International Development Studies have many experiential learning opportunities. You may be able to earn a credit by taking the IDS practicum. Students completing a practicum for credit must volunteer at least 72 hours with an international development organization in Fredericton or in a country in the global south. The student is then required to write a report reflecting on one’s personal experiences. Contact us for more information.
