SSHS Pathways Program


Getting Started

Students in the School of Social Science and Human Services are required to complete the SSHS Pathways Program as part of their degree requirements.* The Program consists of three career skills courses that can help students be more successful in securing internships while in school and professional full-time employment upon graduation. All courses are zero credits and pass/fail.

It is recommended students move through the courses sequentially, as the activities are designed to build upon one another.

Career Pathways Module 1 for Social Sciences & Human Services: Career Assessment – Students to consider how their interests, personality, and strengths align with various career options. This course allows students to identify career readiness and requires completion of an online Career Assessment, attendance of a Focus 2 Review session and the completion of a Career Map/Post Graduation Plan.

Career Pathways Module 2 for Social Sciences & Human Services: Written Application Materials Students identify activities, skills, and experiences in order to develop a resume, LinkedIn profile and cover letter to highlight skills and experiences relative to a desired position or post-graduation plans.

Career Pathways Module 3 for Social Sciences & Human Services: Research and Interviewing – Students prepare to articulate their career goals, educational background, skills, work interests, and values with industry professionals when interviewing for internship/job opportunities or graduate/professional schools.
