Human Sciences Day is a professional development opportunity for students in the College of Arts and Human Sciences. This event is a collaboration between Career Services and the College of Arts and Human Sciences to help students explore career opportunities in nonprofit, government, public and private companies, along with graduate school. Students can engage in purposeful career conversations and network with employers to gain perspectives of what they can do for an internship or professional position after earning their degree.
