Here at UNLV, we like to challenge our students and turn our academics up a notch. How, you ask? By providing innovative academic enrichment opportunities alongside traditional ones to enhance your college experience.
Learning Beyond Borders
We are firm believers in broadening educational horizons through travel. Whether you study in another country, perform at a foreign festival, or participate in a national conference, your exposure to different cultures will elevate your academic experience.
Business students study entrepreneurship on a global scale through the entrepreneurship program. Through immersive learning and leadership development, they gain experience crafting unique business models to bring new products and services to world markets.
Travel is an important part of any college education and helps students understand our changing society and planet.
Learning from the Community
Learning isn’t constricted to just the classroom. A variety of activities offered through research and service-learning programs expands on your knowledge, provides depth to classwork, and enhances the academic culture of campus.
Students in service-learning classes benefit academically, professionally, and personally as they increase their understanding of the class topic, contribute to the community, and gain hands-on experience.
Service-learning classes and alternative break trips are great ways to experience a different community, increase your understanding of class topics, and explore social justice issues through service alongside communities.
Here at UNLV, we offer both undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to expand their educational experience through creative, interdisciplinary research, both independent and faculty mentored.
The Honors College was built for students who simply want more — more depth, more challenges, more opportunities. The Honors community is one of passionate students who, despite their various areas of study, share a drive to build fulfilling lives that will impact the world.
The program, designed to complement and enhance every major at UNLV, is an alternative to UNLV’s general education core requirements. The program delivers a liberal arts/sciences core through specially-designed courses available only to Honors College students.
Extending Campus to the Community
Whether you want to just take a class, refresh your professional skills, or develop a new talent or interest, UNLV offers a wealth of opportunities for personal growth, enrichment, and cultural awareness.
If you're a retired or semi-retired adult interested in becoming a part of a spirited community of engaged learners, we offer you learning activities designed to enhance your understanding of the world—from the historic, to the cultural, to the social—using a variety of non-credit learning formats.
Here at UNLV Continuing Education, we design and develop innovative and comprehensive courses for your professional advancement, personal enrichment, professional certification, and skill enhancement through workshops, classes, seminars and conferences.
