Curriculum Project Background

Background:

In the spring of 2012 the Academic and Career Advising Center (ACAC) and the College of the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (CAHSS) began implementing career education within the core coursework of CAHSS majors.  These efforts centered on providing faculty with resources and assistance to prepare students to effectively market their college experience. Methods of implementation include guest lectures, presentations, career related assignments, training, consultation, and curriculum design.  As a result of introducing this initiative to the Council of Chairs in fall of 2012, multiple departments have collaborated with the ACAC to integrate career curriculum into their coursework. 

In spring of 2014, the ACAC and CAHSS began a second phase of implementation focused on creating curriculum resources that allow faculty to implement career focused lesson plans and assignments into the core coursework within their majors.  The CAHSS and ACAC Career Curriculum Development Committee began to build this curriculum in Fall of 2014.  The Curriculum is designed to serve classrooms at the introductory level (the focus of the committee for Fall '14), the intermediate level (in progress for Spring '15), and the capstone level (scheduled for development in Fall '15).
