Career Pathways

Through our Career Pathways Program, we build bridges to career and internship opportunities for our students, assisting them as they cross these bridges and prepare for a life of human flourishing and faithful service.

But this program is also a process:  we encourage students to think about their future employment in vocational terms, i.e. what is God calling each person to do professionally, as a means to serving God and the common good?  And further, we encourage students to develop a theological understanding of how they can integrate their faith and their work, thereby sanctifying the world and answering the Church’s universal call to holiness.
