Career Development

School of Professional Studies (SPS) students are more than just students- they are busy professionals balancing multiple responsibilities. The courses in SPS programs are the first and most important resources in the career development process at SPS. They are where students will develop industry-specific skills, deepen knowledge of theories to improve professional practice, network with peers and colleagues, and gain insights from instructors who are also leaders in their respective fields. 

The SPS Career Development portfolio is designed to complement the career development that's already happening in the classroom and help students master skills that modern professionals need to advance their careers.
