DEG of the Week! (August 13 - August 17)

New DEG of the Week! This is our 2nd-last DEG of the Week for Summer 2018! Crazy right?! It's like summer flew by!

You can find our Degree Exploration Guides in CareerZone and at 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!
