Experiential Education

Combine Knowledge With Real-Life Practice

LUJ is an Experiential Education institution. We believe the best way to learn is by combining knowledge with real-life practice. This includes professional work experience through more traditional internships as well as Lakeland’s award-winning Cooperative Education program. Both options give students the advantage of expanding and deepening their understanding of various studies by applying new knowledge and concepts in real-world situations. Another unique aspect of LUJ’s experiential education is our Student-Run Businesses (SRB’s), which are on-campus businesses that help students hone their business and entrepreneurship skills while earning course credit and employee wages.
