Welcome Students!

The St. Mary’s University Career and Professional Development Center provides a full range of services to support students and alumni at all points along their career journey. Your degree will open many doors to opportunity.

The Career Center utilizes a Define, Discover, Do model, which creates the space and ability for our Career Coaches to meet each student where they are on their professional development road.

All programming and coaching are grounded in best practices provided by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) and career development literature.  Learn more about how the Career Center can help you reach your goals.



During your time at St. Mary’s, we encourage you to explore your interests, topics of study, and the world of work! You can find out more about specific career options and resources available at StMU through our Career Journey Pages.


On your Career Journey, you will find programs, opportunities, and careers that will inspire you to take action. Discover majors, skills, and in-demand careers and education based on your interests!


When you learn about your values, skills, and interests, then it is time to apply your knowledge through opportunities such as internships, research,  attending career events, and joining professional organizations.
