Taught By: Davida Smyth

Section: A

CRN: 7358

Credits: 2

In this tutorial course, students will acquire the skills needed to successfully navigate their journey towards graduate school and/or further study in STEAMD (STEM + the Arts + Design). Freshman to senior students will develop their online presence, grow their mentoring network, perfect their resumes and personal statements, and gain practice in communicating their work in the form of abstracts, elevator pitches and posters. Students will receive support and guidance from the instructor and their peers towards applying for internships, paid internships and fellowships and Summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (or REUs). Through self-reflection and mapping their assets, students will construct a professional development plan to help guide them towards their future careers. Diverse perspectives and options for careers will be presented through in-person guest lectures and online zoom and skype sessions. Students will also be exposed to the vast professional and networking opportunities available in the NYC area.
