Navigating Career Paths in the Liberal Arts

At St. Edward's University, we recognize that our graduates will likely have multiple career transitions throughout their professional lives. We are committed to preparing you not only for your first job out of college, but for a lifetime of purposeful employment. 

A career is a trajectory of professional experiences that reflects your purpose, develops and employs your skills, and evolves over time. Your career path begins in college through exploration, preparation, and experience. Navigating Career Paths is an intentional program in which you will:

three phases of the process
  • learn about yourself and your values
  • identify transferable skills you're acquiring from your studies and engagement in campus activities
  • build important career management skills, and 
  • engage in experience-based learning and reflection that will inform your career decisions 

Get started on your path.

We are eager to collaborate with students and faculty members to deepen the impact and further the reach of the Navigating Career Paths program. For more information, contact Amy Clements, Professor of Writing and Rhetoric and Faculty Director of Navigating Career Paths.

Quality Enhancement Plan

All universities and colleges undergo a re-accreditation process every 10 years as a normal part of demonstrating their educational quality, institutional effectiveness and continuous improvement. St. Edward’s University participated in this process conducted by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), the regional body for the accreditation of higher education institutions in the Southern states. Navigating Career Paths in the Liberal Arts has been approved by SACSCOC as the Quality Enhancement Plan. Read the full Quality Enhancement Plan.
