Mix it Up - A guide to interdisciplinary education and non-traditional career paths

What will I be Mentored about?

The focus of our event is to introduce students to interdisciplinary education and non-traditional career paths, and show students how to bridge your studies with your career. Our workshop will mainly focus on academics, through which students will evaluate their own passions and be introduced to the possibilities of interdisciplinary studies and academic paths. We will also have another component in which students are introduced to career opportunities that merge two distinct disciplines and show students how to use their university experience to inform their career exploration and choices.
