Career Readiness Tracks

The Career Readiness Tracks are designed to help students utilize their elective credit in a way most beneficial to prepare them to enter the world of employment. Students are invited but not required to pursue one or more career readiness tracks.

The Career Tracks combine offerings of the liberal arts with introductory professional courses enabling students to explore several areas more or less related to their chosen major fields. These tracks should motivate students to enter a career-oriented field at a paraprofessional level while pursuing further study, particularly where openings in their major fields may not be immediately available. In any event, these tracks are intended to provide enrichment and broadening experiences for those who have chosen to pursue a rich liberal arts curriculum and fairly intensive pre-professional academic programs.

The Career Readiness Tracks are listed in the following pages with cross references to the appropriate academic departments. Specific professional courses may be described here, however, where they apply. All courses listed here may also be used for purely elective credit. Students who complete the requirements of one or more of these career readiness tracks will receive appropriate certificates and notations on their transcripts. Applications for careers tracks are obtained from the Registrar’s Office.
