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.
