Connected Learning

Learn by Doing

Connected Learning takes you beyond the classroom and into the field. 

The Lasell Connected Learning curriculum combines breadth in the arts and sciences, professional/technical coursework, and educational projects that tackle real issues. Connected learning refers to explorations of issues, problems, and events through in- and out-of-classroom activities and projects.

Lasell University strives for students to be so engaged with academic subject matter that learning itself matters to them in ways that go beyond meeting course requirements and earning grades. We thereby emphasize the idea of Lasell students being productive versus consumptive learners as they become committed simultaneously to a successful and rewarding career, an ongoing life of intellectual exploration, and active citizenship.

Through course-based projects, internships, clinical experiences, service learning, study abroad, collaborative research, and on- site training, all of Lasell's degree-granting programs center on students' understanding of the value of their academic work as they prepare to become imaginative and ethical practitioners in their chosen professions.


Lasell was ranked by U.S. News & World Report as a top 10 nationally with the highest rate of student internships. One hundred percent of Lasell students participate in at least one internship. Many do more.

"Lasell's teaching method, Connected Learning, gave me invaluable experiences that allowed me to be successful at my internships with velocity sports performance and Harvard's varsity athletic teams. I wouldn't have obtained my position at MIT without Lasell."
