CAS 1130: Career Planning in the Liberal Arts is targeted to students in the College of Arts & Sciences, but is open to any student exploring major or career options. This class will help students discover their interests and skills, build an intentional network, and create professional tools (like a resume) they can use right away. Students in this class will also have the opportunity to develop a professional portfolio, build a LinkedIn page that will be used for course assignments, and complete several reflective activities related to career exploration, including the True Colors Personal Success Workshop.

This highly interactive course has been offered since Fall 2013, when it launched to learning community students in several academic departments within the College of Arts & Sciences. Course activities and discussion will be tailored to students’ individual interests and goals, including outside speakers and research tools.

CAS 1130 is a 2 credit hour, graded course that will be offered Monday/Wednesday/Friday from 11:50 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. in the Career & Leadership Development Center’s conference room, BUC 503. The course is being taught by Lindsey Marx, Associate Director for the Career & Leadership Development Center.
