Overview

Your end goal is our focus from day one

The days of a single job, or a single career are over. On average, the typical college graduate will have 10-14 jobs by the age of 38, and will spend an average of only 18 months in their first position. We know this, and that’s why our pragmatic, experiential and multidisciplinary approach to learning pays dividends for graduates throughout their lives and careers.

Our graduates continue to build upon their success in a range of fields, from banking and publishing to marketing and education. In short, their education continues to work for them. Achieving that same level of success means taking full advantage of all of the career-building resources available to you while you are here – and we will point you in the right direction at every step along the way.

Each meaningful undergraduate experience will be collected in an E-portfolio. Your E-portfolio will serve as a compelling narrative that illustrates your professional growth and adaptability to future employers, helping you find your place post-graduation.

At Quinnipiac’s College of Arts and Sciences, we believe in a 360-degree advising model that incorporates both your academic and career development. Our unique CAS360 advising platform is the hub of this highly personalized, integrated approach to student advising that begins your first day on campus and continues throughout your entire college experience. CAS360 is a one-stop destination for resources that help you explore your options and develop your plan. The advantages of our advising platform, CAS360, include:
