Professional Development Certificate

What will you get out of the Professional Development Certificate?

The Professional Development Certificate provides student attendees at all stages of their career with an ongoing, engaging, and productive professionalization opportunity at our virtual conference. The certificate also serves as a recognizable accomplishment that enhances students’ CVs/Resumes. 

How does it work?

The certificate program offers the opportunity for students to increase their core competencies, expand foundations of disciplinary knowledge, and engage in career exploration and preparation.  These areas of concentration expand sociology students’ professional development in our discipline. 

Students will need to attend three virtual professional development workshops and three conference sessions which align with their goals and desired areas of personal growth. Once all 6 sessions are attended, participants must write a 2-3 page reflection on the sessions and their relevance to their own practice of sociology and future aspirations.
