Learning at SOU goes beyond the classroom into the local community—and the world at large. Students encouraged (yes, expected) to put into practice the knowledge, skills, and expertise they acquired in classrooms, labs, and studios.
Through internships, mentor relationships, field study, capstone projects, volunteer work, and civic engagement, students translate learning into meaning. We call it Connected Learning.
It’s built on a broad foundation of knowledge—the liberal arts and sciences. It’s also woven into professional disciplines like business, education, criminology, and computer science. It’s challenging, practical, and creative.
SOU offers 36 majors and 100 academic programs, each offering students outstanding learning opportunities. Your gift can support and inspire academic excellence.
