Career Planning Courses

UCOL-U 210 Career Connections

This course is designed to assist students in the major/career exploration and selection process. Especially targeted are students who are beyond their first semester with over 12 credit hours but with less than 56 credit hours and who want or need to change majors or to declare a major. The course is designed to help students develop and execute a personalized plan of major and career exploration. This will be encouraged by using the first eight weeks of weekly class meetings to develop an individualized exploration contract and then using the second eight weeks to implement that plan outside of class. Students will also meet individually with the instructor and academic/career advisor. Through the course emphasis on experiential learning, students will be making connections with people, activities, and resources that will facilitate a more realistic approach to major and career decision making.
