The CLA Undergraduate Education staff is here to help you explore opportunities, navigate your path, and make the most of the career advantage your liberal arts education gives you. CLA has teams of people devoted to helping you determine your goals and then reach them.
Our Mission: Help you leverage your Liberal Arts Advantage
No matter which major you choose in CLA, your liberal arts courses and experiences combine so you can demonstrate gains in all 10 of these Core Career Competencies that employers and alumni tell us matter most.
These competencies give you a competitive edge that makes you stand out as a candidate for jobs and graduate programs. Your adaptability will position you for lasting success in your personal, public, and professional life.
So we’re here to help you plan and connect what you do across CLA and translate its value into the language of employers.
“Employers today are looking for people who can solve problems, think inventively, communicate well, consider multiple and diverse perspectives, work nimbly, conduct research, analyze the past, understand the present, and imagine the future.”
— John Coleman, Dean of the College
