Credits: 1

In this short course, students will have the opportunity to both explore and prepare for careers and post-graduate experiences in STEAMD fields (Science, Technology, Environment, Art, Math, and Design). For example, students may investigate paths: pursuing health and environmental policy; science communication through film, journalism, and bioart; advocacy; activism; research; and/or K-12 education. In this course, students will learn strategies to grow their online presence and mentoring network, perfect their resumes/CVs and personal statements, and gain practice in communicating and showcasing their work. This course will also discuss ways to disseminate work through exhibitions, social media, conferences, posters, panels, presentations, and publications in peer-reviewed journals, including journals that publish undergraduate research. In addition, this course will discuss how to identify and fund internships, research, and fellowship opportunities. Through self-reflection and mapping their assets, students will construct a professional development plan to help them understand how a liberal arts education can guide them toward their future career goals. Much of the course is centered on peer review and collaboration to make progress on these important developmental goals. Diverse perspectives and career options will be presented through in-person guest/alumni lectures and online zoom and skype sessions. Students will also be exposed to the vast professional and networking opportunities available in the NYC area. This course is open to students from all levels and majors. This course does not satisfy any requirements towards the IS major or minor.
