Subject: Fall 2022: Register for a 1-credit career course!

For many students, an effective way to make time for career development is by
taking a class for credit. Below is information on two 1-credit courses that
can help our students prepare for their careers:

The University Career Center & The President’s Promise offers two 1-credit
career courses for undergraduate UMD students: EDCP108i & PSYC123.  Both
courses are online and asynchronous with key exploratory and career
preparation activities. We have a personalized section of EDCP108i that is
specific to the needs of CMNS students like you! See more info on the courses

Register for one of the career course options below for fall 2022!
*both courses offered in spring semester, too*

EDCP108i: Academic Transitions to Internships | 1 credit | asynchronous

EDCP108i is a 7-week (half-semester), 1-credit online course recommended for
students who have never had an internship and are actively searching for one.
   Topics include on-campus and off-campus resources to find internships,
