Beginner Module: Designed for Freshman & Sophomore Level Students

Module Theme: Who am I, and what do I want to do?

As CHSS majors complete their freshman and sophomore years of college, they must begin researching, reflecting, and actively participating in the career exploration process. Becoming engaged with these activities provides students the time and resources to understand their personality, values, and strengths regarding potential career opportunities. Through this module, students will receive a foundation to begin actualizing how their purpose can correspond with their sense of self, possible career options, and steps they can complete to pursue various careers. Critically evaluating these concepts is essential for students to understand who and what they want to be with their career and life.
