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 annual conference. The certificate also serves as a recognizable accomplishment that enhances students’ CVs/Resumes.
How does it work?
The certificate program offers four (4) core competencies: 1) Foundations of Disciplinary Knowledge, 2) Professionalism, 3) Career Exploration & Preparation, and 4) Leadership. These competencies were designed to capture sociology students’ areas of professional development in our discipline.
At each conference, participants choose one area of competency to address and are provided with a pre-approved list of workshops/sessions to choose from. Participants must fulfill a certain number of credit hours (Option A or B*) and collect session presiders’ signatures on a worksheet in order to be issued a certificate.
