Graduate/Professional School Assistance
A professional degree program will provide the necessary tools for specific types of careers, such as law, medicine, counseling, business administration, journalism, social work, and pharmacy.
A graduate degree program will provide opportunities to develop skills and conduct research in broad academic areas like English, history, political science, the arts, math, education, social science, and natural science.
Students are strongly encouraged to participate in an internship or cooperative education program prior to graduation whether academically required or for practical experience. Statistics prove that students with this background have a greater chance of obtaining permanent employment. Internships and cooperative education programs offer hands-on experience which attracts employers when recruiting college graduates.
Various companies take this opportunity to visit our campus, conduct Information Sessions, and interview qualified candidates for full and part time employment.

Career Services offers assistance with resumes, cover letters, and interview skills. You can also register with our partner, MonsterTrak, for more assistance.
