Career Readiness

Students in the College of Arts and Sciences have the opportunity to take a wide range of courses that can pique an academic interest in various career sectors, including public health policy, theatre production, sports performance — and more. As the CAS classroom challenges perspectives and worldviews, experiential learning bridges the gap between theory and the workplace. The college is working on ways to build a culture of career readiness into our undergraduate education. We recently worked with Paré Consulting, LLC last fall to do a thorough analysis of the college's career readiness and experiential learning activities. To view the executive summary of the report, click here.

Our commitment to career readiness aligns with the UO Onward priorities. We aim to provide our students with a CAS-centric experience for career readiness that focuses on the liberal arts and sciences while also preparing students for meaningful careers and lives after graduation.

While we develop our approach to career readiness, explore how our students have found experiential learning opportunities and support from advisors at Tykeson Hall.
