Exploring Students

The Roger Williams University advising team recognizes that ‘career’ is more than your first job after graduation, but a lifelong adventure where you’ll grapple with a changing world, a growing self, and an unpredictable future.  On this adventure, a Roger Williams University education will prepare you for many potential paths and career opportunities, and as an exploring student, you are in a unique position to take a deep dive into your interests, values, and skills along the way to finding a path that is a good fit for you.  You have a variety of options to discover – take advantage of this time to explore as a young professional!

In the CCPD, we aim to provide you with the skills, tools, and resources you need to be confident on the journey – which is often not linear. In fact, many students venture between various majors, minors, and core concentrations to fit their specific or unique passions and interests. 

Advising support at RWU celebrates your willingness to explore what matters to you by facilitating connections that align with what you want to learn more about as a developing professional! For more tips on getting started, click here!
