Academic and Career Exploration
A powerful mix.
All parts of the Albion Advantage come together in our Career Readiness Model. In your first year, you will map out your path to graduation, working with your faculty adviser, the Career Development Office, and other mentors. You will evaluate your personal strengths and identify career fields where those strengths would allow you to shine. At the same time, you will develop an academic plan and look ahead to the selection of your major.
During your sophomore and junior years, you will refine your academic plan and gain practical, marketable skills through experience-based learning opportunities such as independent research, internships, and off-campus study. As you progress through your four years at Albion, you will compile your accomplishments in an electronic resume that may be shared with future employers and/or graduate and professional schools. You will leave Albion confident in your abilities and ready for success.
