Beyond the Classroom
Beyond student coursework, there are certain skills and competencies employers and potential programs value. Skills such as patience, work ethic, and strong communication, which are best learned through experience, demonstrate a mature professional.
Beyond the classroom, graduate programs and professional careers will expect students to demonstrate an orientation toward service. Service-oriented experience helps students demonstrate their development in responsibility, ethics, the importance of reliability and dependability, cultural awareness, resilience, adaptability, and more.
