CDCI 200: CAREER EXPLORATION

Explore the World of Career Opportunities

The goal of this two-credit online course is to guide you in creating a meaningful and purposeful plan to prepare for your future career, while getting the most out of your college experience. This course is ideal for students who either have yet to declare a major, who are having second thoughts about their current majors, or who are experiencing overall uncertainty about their career direction.

 

I took the CDCI 200 Bridging Academics to Careers course during my winter break. I went in feeling lost and uncertain about my academic future. By the end of the class, I felt more aware of my options and confident in my abilities to seek them out. The project where I had to interview 2 career professionals led me to pursue a shadowing experience at my old high school which helped me realize that I want to study education. I'm grateful to the program for helping me navigate potential career and major interests.
