“It's not 'What do you want to do for the rest of your life?' It's 'What do you want to do NEXT?'”
- Andrew Leahy, Office of Career Services
In an atmosphere of personal support and encouragement, Stonehill students have limitless opportunities to explore their passions and to build strong practical skills. Our faculty members, academic advisors and campus mentors help students navigate a variety of disciplines to design a plan that is the right fit for their life goals.
Post-graduate planning begins on day one – from completing the Strong Interest Inventory as a first-year student to implementing a career search or applying to graduate schools during the fourth year. Using a holistic approach to education, we provide foundational tools that help students achieve the goals they have set for themselves.
Every first-year student is assigned an advisor by the Office of Academic Services & Advising, but academic advising at Stonehill extends into many other on-campus resources. Academic advisors are encouraged to develop ongoing relationships with students that go well beyond course selection to encompass short and long-term goal-setting and planning.
Pre-Professional Advising programs provide recommendations for meeting undergraduate requirements, suggestions for advancement to graduate study, and other guidance for students who intend to pursue a career in a specific field. Stonehill offers pre-professional advising programs in a number of disciplines, including:
- Pre-Allied Health Professions, such as medical, dental, optometry, podiatry, chiropractic, and veterinary
- Pre-Health Professions, such as nursing, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, physical therapist, occupational therapist, pharmacist, nuclear medicine technician, etc.
- Teacher Licensure
