Course Description

This is a three credit course offered Fall, Winter and Spring quarters for credit/no-credit. It will assist students with self-exploration and provide a model to integrate academic and experiential skills into the process of career planning.

Elements include: exploring academic and other "good experiences" to identify Dependable Strengths; individual self-assessment; group interaction/discussion; and experiential learning. Emphasis is placed on early planning and acquiring decision-making skills, so that students can make informed choices related to course of study, internships, volunteer activities and community service while acquiring marketable skills.

Students will be given the tools to conduct an effective career search in the context of the changing nature of work. Students are encouraged to participate in internship experiences. Navigating Career Options is taught in a collaborative effort by professional staff members from the UW Career Center, the UW Counseling Center and other student services departments.
