The Career Development Center advises students based on a 16 career cluster model. Professional staff members are assigned to clusters and specialize in advising students on those careers. (Who is your cluster advisor?) For students who have chosen a major, the focus shifts to what to do with that major.
What is a Career Cluster?
It is a group of similar occupations in the same field of work that require similar skills. Career clusters may be divided into several pathways and can be used to help students focus educational plans to obtain the necessary knowledge, competencies, and training for success in a particular career pathway. Click a cluster below to see pathways, sample careers, and knowledge and skills necessary for each.
