Discover Your Future

From the beginning steps of figuring out majors and potential career paths to the final steps of applying for jobs or to graduate school, the Career Development Center is with you every step of the way.

Prospective Students

We pride ourselves on being a friendly, professional, and student-focused office that will inspire, guide, prepare, and educate you on all things related to your career development.

  • Choosing Your Major

    The staff in the Career Development Center can help students through the decision making process by reviewing individual interests, abilities, personality, and values. Through a combination of exploration, research, and practical experience, you can determine an area of study that suits you best. Your major will not necessarily dictate a specific career path so it’s important to select a major that motivates and interests you!

    To start the process, check out the Academic Programs offered at the University of New Haven.

    If you plan on attending an Accepted Students Day, be sure to attend the special program for Exploratory Students as we discuss the process for choosing a major and show you all the resources and people available to help in your decision making process.

    Then, once you arrive on campus be sure to visit the Career Development Center and the First Year Success Center to get the help you need to make the right choice!

  • Grad School Preparation

    If you are thinking about graduate or professional school, the Career Development Center staff is available to discuss how an advanced degree will prepare you for a future career.

    Through research and exploration, you can determine if graduate school is the right fit for you. We can provide information on researching graduate and professional schools, the application process, and can review personal statements.

    Check out our list of Academic programs to learn more.

  • Student Employment

    There are a number of ways for students to gain valuable work experience, while earning a few extra dollars to pay the bills and enjoy campus life.

  • Internships

    Internships are one of the most relevant and important activities a University of New Haven student can undertake. Not only will an internship look great on your résumé at graduation, it will allow you to apply what you have learned in the classroom to the real world, and will also let you bring real-world learning back into the classroom!
