The field is experiencing explosive growth in the job market and our graduates are eligible for opportunities in exciting careers all over the world.

When and where are the Information Sessions?

Information Sessions are a full two hour program. They are not on a drop-in basis. We hold four sessions during the Fall semester and three sessions during the Spring semester. Each Information Session will consist of the same material, so you need only to attend one. Current high school students, undergraduates, community college students, and their families are welcome to attend. The Spring 2018 Information Session dates are as follows:

  • Saturday, March 3rd from 1-3pm
  • Thursday, March 29th from 4-6pm
