MACE is a six-week program, meeting for an hour a week, offered every semester to freshmen and sophomores, typically beginning after add/drop. It is most beneficial to students looking for assistance determining or confirming career options. Instructed by a member of the Cohen Career Center staff, you will complete a series of self-assessments reflecting on interests, skills, values, and environment. Each week, you will learn a new way to gather information and research career options based on your assessment results. At the end of the program, you will create a three-semester plan, setting goals for career-related experiences in the near future.


The start dates for the different MACE sections are:


Tuesdays, February 9-March 22

Wednesdays, February 10-March 23

Thursdays, February 11-March 24
