Career Development

Connecting you to your future

Do you dream of starting your own business or becoming a professor and inspiring others? Do you want to work for an NGO and change the world or improve people's lives through health-care discoveries? Maybe you think you'd make a great government leader, lawyer, philosopher, economist or computer scientist. Maybe you're not sure of your path, but you have some subjects that interest you.

Arts & Sciences Career Development is your first stop for advice on careers, internships, or graduate school. We specialize in helping liberal arts students determine their goals, and provide the tools to achieve them. Our office supports current A&S undergraduate students and recent graduates of the college. Career development counselors are here to help. It's never too early to start thinking about your future.
