Career preparation is built into our curriculum from the start. You’ll gain valuable field experience through an assistantship or other paid position, along with internships and practicum experiences that are integrated into your coursework. You’ll also have opportunities for mock interviews, resume review, negotiation skills, and networking with alumni and other working professionals. And employers love our graduates – most are hired either before graduating, or within just a few months.
