Career Services for Current Students

So what exactly can I do with this liberal arts education I’m getting at Christendom, anyway?

The answer is: Anything you want!

The simple fact is that a liberal arts education provides you the lifelong learning skills you need to succeed in any field of endeavor that interests you. Your liberal arts degree prepares you to communicate effectively, analyze and solve complex problems, adapt to new situations, and interact with a wide variety of people—skills that employers place in high demand. And while it’s true that liberal arts graduates tend to start out somewhat behind their peers who attend colleges and universities that offer more technically-oriented degrees, it’s also a fact that the liberal arts graduate will generally progress faster than those same peers, moving into positions of increased responsibility and leadership (and, of course, pay) at an accelerated rate.

Christendom graduates have built successful careers in everything from the arts to teaching, from financial services to medicine, from law to the military; in short, no career is beyond your reach as a Christendom graduate. And if an advanced degree is your desire, our graduates have continued their studies at such prestigious schools as Notre Dame Law School, Harvard, the University of Virginia, Fordham, William and Mary, the Catholic University of America, The Angelicum, the Institute of World Politics, the Institute for the Psychological Sciences, and Oxford University.
