Calling All Liberal Arts Majors
A LIBERAL ARTS CAREER READINESS PROGRAM
LAB is a four-year program for liberal arts majors, helping them explore interests, build skills, and gain confidence for a smooth transition to post-graduation life. Enrolling in LAB ensures students have guidance and support through this process of discovery and preparation, bridging them to their first destination and beyond.
BRIDGING PASSION TO PROFESSION
LAB helps students secure internships that help build important professional networks and connections. 93% percent of hiring managers say they are much more likely to hire a recent college graduate who has had internship experience. LAB can even offer funding for unpaid internships for those who qualify.
