Careers and Majors

What can I do with my degree?

This is a very common question and the truth is there is not one correct answer.

Your future career journey is determined on your area(s) of interest, skills, values, and personal style. Two students in the same program, module or specialization may take all the same classes and go on to do two very different things.

There are some gated entry points with specific requirements (i.e. Registered Dietician, Teacher, Lawyer, Doctor), but the benefit of your degree is the multitude of transferable skills and knowledge that you are gaining and are able apply in a vast array of experiences. Your degree at Brescia is helping you develop these skills; skills like: writing, research, the ability to critically think and learn, problem solving, time management, communication, and establishing an informed perspective.

Below, we have put together a short list of areas that graduates and individuals in a variety of fields have gone on to pursue; but we caution you to think outside of this list--it is only a small snapshot of a few ideas and does not encompass all possibilities.

What can you do with your degree?...anything and everything!
