Concordia launches Humanities+ career preparation program

January 22, 2021
Concordia University has launched a Humanities+ program that is designed to help undergraduates in Humanities-based programs better prepare for meaningful careers after graduation. Students in the Humanities+ program will complete zero-credit courses that cover topics such as digital presentations, professional communications, and job search and interview strategies. Students will also take part in a work-integrated learning experience that will allow them to develop their skills within a workplace and network in a professional context. “This initiative supports our students in that all-important transition from the academic context to the workforce,” says Sandra Gabriele, Concordia’s vice-provost of innovation in teaching and learning. “Closing the gap in the first five years of employment for humanities graduates is critical.” Concordia (QC)
