What are you doing this summer?
Part time work?
A service learning experience?
The College of LAS is excited to announce a new course to help you integrate your summer experience with your academic and career development goals. Introducing the:
LAS 199: Professional Development Seminar
This course meets in-person four times this spring (4/4, 4/11, 4/18, and 4/25) to help you prepare for the summer experience followed by six online modules over the summer and two in-person classes on 8/22 and 8/29.
In this course, students will connect experiential learning (internships, service learning, volunteer efforts, part-time work related to their field of study) to their liberal arts & sciences education and explore how out of class learning can support career exploration and skill development.
Students will make connections between their experiential learning experience and their academic, personal and professional goals through classroom activities, reflections, an e-portfolio as well as cover career development topics such as identifying your work style, company fit, and informational interviews.
While this course is open to all LAS students, it is expected that students who join this course will have at least a 20 hours/week experience for 5 weeks over the summer.
Enrollment is by application only: https://illinois.edu/fb/sec/8891285
Questions may be directed to the course instructor, Robin Mosley Vaughan.
While the bulk of the work is done online this summer, this unique course will go on your transcript as a Spring 2016 course (i.e. summer school tuition is not required).
Apply now! Class begins Monday, April 4th!
