Career Pathways for Adult Education
The School of Academic Foundations wants to give you a head start on pursuing a major or career. To help, we have organized various types of work into five Career Pathway groups. Informing us about which careers you are considering helps us guide your transition into college or the world of work. When students select their Career Pathway, it helps define their career goals – similar to declaring a major in college. Students are welcome to select multiple Career Pathways or change to another Pathway at any time. You can view, download and print our Career Pathway information sheet.
