Career Forum, Open Classes Mark “Think Grad School” Week

As part of Florida State University’s campus-wide “Think Graduate School” week, October 13-16, 2014, the College of Social Sciences and Public Policy is offering a forum on careers in public policy and is opening several of its graduate-level classes to undergrads during the week. Both events are designed to help undergrads make decisions about pursuing advanced degrees in the social sciences.

The Careers in Public Policy Forum features alumni from the college who are now working in the field as well as representatives from the following programs that focus on public policy: Applied Politics, Demography, International Affairs, Public Health, Applied Sociology, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Public Administration, and Urban and Regional Planning.

The career forum will be presented in room 102 of the Bellamy Building on Wednesday, October 15, from 6:45 to 8:00 p.m. A reception follows the forum with light refreshments.

During the week of October 13-17, the college will open a number of classes in GIS, sociology, demography, and planning to undergraduates. For a complete list of classes, visit here. To find our more information and/or reserve your spot in one or more of these classes, please email COSSPP Associate Dean Tim Chapin.

“The College of Social Sciences has so much to offer students thinking about continuing their education beyond the bachelor’s degree,” said Chapin. “Further study in public policy is perfect for those who want to be decision makers and agents of change. Advanced degrees in the college open the door to exciting work that tackles the most pressing challenges of today’s world. We encourage all students, regardless of their present major, to check out the possibilities.”

The departments in the college will also be represented at the Graduate and Professional School Career Fair, Tuesday October 14, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. in the Oglesby Union (rain location: Union Ballroom).
