Academics & Experiential Learning
Wentworth is a maker community. We build things and we learn by doing. Academics, of course, are essential, and our classroom learning marries the skills of our exceptional faculty with rigorous curricula that represent the leading edge of knowledge in every discipline we offer.
We integrate experiential learning with our academics. This takes many forms. Only Wentworth requires a minimum of two co-op semesters in order to graduate. But that’s just the beginning. Other hands-on activities involve EPIC Learning projects, which are interdisciplinary engagements with external parties; opportunities to develop entrepreneurial ventures; and service learning projects with community partners.
We believe that our unique blend of academics and experiential learning helps students to learn more, put what they’ve learned into practice, and graduate with the know-how needed to be successful in their careers.
