Carleton’s Pathways website can help you:
- Explore careers, internships, off-campus study programs, organizations, and a host of other resources.
- Expand the universe of possibilities you might consider. Don’t restrict yourself to things that are familiar. Branch out and see where your interests lie.
- Integrate the courses you take, the extracurriculars you do, even the on-campus or summer job you have.
- Connect with the resource people on campus, reach out to alumni, and talk with anyone who will share their experience with you.
- Be bold: pathways are not recipes or tracks. There is no single “right” way to pursue a career.
- Return to explore the pathways and discover how virtually everything you have done — or might do — can contribute in some way to a career path.
- Contribute your ideas for other features, new pathways, or just links you’ve found useful.
Explore Carleton alumni career paths by major through the magic of data visualization!
You can select either a major or a field of employment and see the lines of connection in either direction. Select one of those lines and see each broad field of employment further broken down into sub-fields.
