Career Exploration: Job Shadowing

During the winter break, students are encouraged to arrange a job shadow experience with someone who works in their field of interest. Job shadowing may involve taking a “behind the scenes” tour of an organization, attending team meetings, interviewing people who hold positions at different levels of a company, and identifying a mentor who can assist you in evaluating potential career options. To connect with UD alumni who may be willing to host your visit to their place of employment, log in to Handshake.

 

 

Major Exploration: Apparel Design and Fashion Merchandising

If you have a knack for creating, adapting, displaying, and marketing clothing and accessories, a career in the fashion industry may be a good fit for you.

Students interested in the restricted majors, Apparel Design (BS) and Fashion Merchandising (BS), should submit the change of major form found here no later than February 15, 2019 to be considered for acceptance in the Spring. Admission to these majors is restricted; that is, they are limited by academic requirements (such as GPA), availability of resources (such as faculty supervisors), or physical space limitations (such as appropriate laboratory facilities).

 

In the Know: Transfer Credit

If you are planning to take a course at another school during the winter session, be sure to check the Transfer Credit Matrix to confirm that the class is accepted for credit at UD. You should complete and submit the TCE form prior to taking the course.

Upon completion of a course at another school, students need to send an official transcript directly to the UD Registrar.  Two weeks after the official transcript has been sent to UD, review UDSIS to ensure the credits have been posted. If not posted, verify UD has received the official transcript by contacting transfercredit@udel.edu.

Student Spotlight: Isabella Hsiao

Isabella is a sophomore UST student and peer liaison. She thinks the main benefit of entering college as an undeclared student is having the opportunity to explore your options by taking classes that interest you while fulfilling breadth requirements. Although she is still considering majors, becoming a member of the Evolution Dance Team and Zumba Club helped Isabella decide to declare a dance minor.
