Exploration: Our MA and dual programs are designed to help you clarify your career goals and be well prepared and positioned for your internship search (and later, your job search). You will begin to explore functional areas and build or expand your professional network in your first semester via informational interviews and engaging with guest speakers in class. You will continue to participate in these and other relevant opportunities throughout the program.

Clarify and Strategize: The program chair is an active and enthusiastic advisor! Dr. Schwartz will work closely with you, in concert with all you are learning in classes to clarify your goals, explore options, and develop a strategy to secure a meaningful internship and position yourself as a strong candidate for full-time positions upon graduation.

Prepare: You will also attend Carlow's Career Summit - a one-day internship/job search intensive program in which you will upgrade your resume, learn search strategies, and expand your professional network.
