Parents

Your son or daughter is a student at Saint Mary's College, right? But they don't seem to have a clue as to what they want to major in, let alone choose as a career. Don't worry, this is not unusual! Choosing a career is a process students need to go through—and they go through the stages of this process at different rates of speed.

The steps include: 

  • exploring majors with assigned SEAS coach

  • exploring career options with CPDS staff

  • experimenting with possible career options with internships, work experience, and volunteer opportunities

  • organizing and conducting a job or graduate school search

You can assist and support your child in each of these stages. But what can—or should—you do? View our Four Year Plan, or click here to read more. Get to know us better too, and see how we can help!
