Career decision-making for college students
PRE 210: Career and Life Planning is a highly effective class designed for first and second year students. It is structured to help students analyze their unique academic and career situation through hands-on activities and discussion. The course is coordinated by Wendy Shoemaker, Sr. Associate Director of The University Career Center. Research shows that students who take PRE 210 are more likely to graduate in four years' time.
The assignments in PRE 210 are specifically designed to help exploring students discover their own interests and gain current career information. Assignments include taking career assessments, researching KU majors, creating a resume, completing an informational interview, and creating an action plan. There is a $45 fee associated with this course to cover the cost of career assessments. A fee waiver is available for students who demonstrate financial need.
The class meets twice a week in small discussion groups no larger than 20 students.
