Grounded in the conviction that experiential learning, work-integrated learning, and entrepreneurship are compatible with the humanities, the King’s Experiential Learning Program (KELP) will give students the opportunity to reflect on their own values, skills and aptitudes developed through their education in the humanities or journalism. This process helps students understand how their skills can benefit a range of fields and gain insight into the career path that is right for them.
This is about giving our students the opportunity to experience for themselves the value of their education.
At King’s we have a special regard for the way education shapes personal development. Figuring out where your degree will take you isn’t always obvious, so our goal is to help students to understand their strengths and values and support you in finding places to contribute to the world, and ways to further develop your competencies. Listed below you’ll find a curated slate of programming such as workshops, networking events, a non-credit course, hackathons, etc., both for King’s students only as well as specially selected opportunities from Dalhousie and our partner Innovation Sandbox SparkZone.
The Sandbox Ignition program is a 10-week program that will provide students with access to training, resources, entrepreneurial ecosystems, and opportunities to engage with mentors already in the industry. Students receive $20 per session attended. Register now.
