- Encourage exploration of future paths: Panel discussions, networking opportunities, and library and online resources with information on a variety of career fields.
- Provide opportunities to acquire knowledge and experience: Internships during the summer and Winter Term, music competitions and summer festivals, freelancing, Business Scholars, Entrepreneurship Scholars, and Law Scholars programs.
- Develop skills for effective self-presentation: Workshops and individual advising on resumes, cover letters, bios, portfolios, audition preparation, proposal and essay writing, interviewing, networking, graduate school, fellowship and employment applications.
