Career Readiness Initiative

The goal of the Career Readiness is to significantly increase the career readiness of the graduates of the College of Humanities, Arts, Behavioral and Social Sciences. We seek to expand the range of career options for graduates, improve the connection between the college and community members, and encourage faculty to be leaders in pedagogy and curriculum regarding career readiness in the liberal arts.

Career Mentoring Network

The Career Readiness Mentoring Network enhances students' career readiness by connecting them with mentors consisting of regional professionals, alumni, business, non-profit and community leaders.


Students: Seeking an internship? Several departments in the College of Humanities, Arts, Behavioral and Social Sciences offer credit-bearing Internship courses.
