College to Career

To ensure that student interests, previous academic history, and career plans coincide, two dedicated courses are integrated into the degree requirements. A 1-credit hour entrance-to-major “Cornerstone” and a graduating-year 2-credit hour “Capstone” (with service-learning, internship, or research project options) are a part of the Liberal Studies and Interdisciplinary Studies core curriculum.

The Cornerstone and Capstone courses are unique in that they help students think about how they can connect what they are learning and doing at university with their plans for the future, whether they be pursuing a specific career or continuing on to graduate school.

These classes are only offered online enabling students with widely different class schedules to “meet” at a common location. The discussion forums in these courses provide a venue to gain advice and insight from your peers and to provide some as well.
