Fourth Year Students

Take Action

Every student follows a different path during their college years. We suggest a general action plan for you to tailor to your individual interests throughout your four years at the University of San Diego. These activities will help you gain a better understanding of your career options and prepare you for making decisions about employment or graduate/professional school. Career Development is here to provide assistance to all students every step of the way.
