The CLAS Voyage

The CLAS Voyage is the realization of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences's promise that, beginning in Fall 2025, all students will have five guaranteed experiential learning experiences, including three experiential learning courses in their major. The experiential learning opportunities take many forms.
