DEG of the Week! (July 30 - August 3)

New DEG of the Week!

You can find our Degree Exploration Guides in CareerZone and at https://brocku.ca/ccee/career-education/campus/what-can-i-do-with-my-degree/. DEGs outline a list of common career options related to a certain program, as well as degree specific skills. Also, DEGs offer various links to help with job and volunteer search in that chosen field! Who wouldn't want one of these for their program?

Each week we will be choosing one Degree Exploration Guide to focus on and welcome all students to come and learn about the different programs here at Brock!
