Applied Learning

Applied learning engages students beyond the classroom to apply knowledge and develop skills and values that enable them to connect their academic pursuits meaningfully with their personal and professional lives.

This can take many forms, including community-engaged learning, study abroad, research, externships, and internships.

Career Competencies

The National Association of Colleges and Employers has surveyed employers for many years and found that there are 8 major categories of career skills that make a candidate career ready. These skills are gained in a variety of ways and employers want to see that you can demonstrate how you have effectively used them in your experiences.
