Center for Pathway Experiences


Center for Pathway Experiences Quick Links

The goal of the center is to assist undergraduate students in finding, funding, and finishing pathway experiences that connect to their post graduation goals. Pathways is a referral source and does not do placement.

What are Pathway Experiences?
  • Internships (on and off campus; paid or unpaid)
  • Student teaching, clinicals, practicums, externships
  • Research (scholarly and/or creative)
  • Entry-level jobs related to field (on or off campus, including part-time jobs or co-ops)
  • Fieldwork/Other activities that provide the student with experience related to their chosen discipline and/or to the student's post-graduation goals

For help deciding your career path before a pathway experience visit Career Services.
