Career Planning in Health Studies

Health relates to a wide range of employment opportunities, and UR’s Career Services resources can be incredibly valuable for helping Health Studies majors and minors understand which types of health-related jobs may best align with their values, interests, and skills. Career advisors can help students explore majors and professional pathways, refine resumes/CVs, search for internships, apply for jobs and graduate school, prepare for interviews, and plan for post-college life. UR students are encouraged to begin engaging with Career Services as soon as they arrive on campus and to continue using them throughout their studies and as alumni.

Career Exploration Events

HS majors and minors learn about health-related professional pathways through our guest speaker series and other events in which alumni, local professionals, and other friends of the department share their wisdom with current students. Deconstructing Health is a daylong program co-sponsored by Alumni and Career Services each October. A&S NEXT is a weekend-long event hosted each January by the School of Arts & Sciences.
