Experiential Learning

A University Education in Zion

Experiential learning includes a variety of activities with one common goal – to immerse you in hands-on learning outside the classroom where your experience is at the heart of the learning process.

Dixie State University is proud to announce Experiential Learning at Zion. Stay, do and learn courses will be offered at the Tanner Amphitheater/Field Station near the entrance to Zion National Park in Springdale, Utah. Courses in Zion will make use of the unique setting of Zion National Park and surrounding areas to offer a one-of-a-kind learning experience. Students will incorporate knowledge learned in traditional or online courses and complete their studies with intensive field experiences. Students also experience outdoor recreation activities such as kayaking, mountain biking, canyoneering, paddle boarding and hiking. Students will have finished their courses while experiencing a unique part of the world. ‚Äč
