Experiential learning

Active, experiential learning is at the heart of the Hajim School education. We believe the skills and knowledge you gain outside the classroom are as important as what you learn within it. With endless opportunities through research, study abroad programs, internships, and entrepreneurship, you can pursue your own unique and fulfilling path.
