Pursuing a path to becoming a pediatrician
In order to best protect the health and well-being of our University community, and in accordance with the latest public health guidance, we are requiring the COVID-19 vaccine for all members of our University community. More than 500 colleges and universities across the country – including many of our peer institutions in Connecticut – have implemented this policy to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on their campuses.
Fully vaccinated members of our University community will be able to immerse themselves in work and learning environments featuring pre-pandemics norms for class formats, student life, and other staples of the Charger experience.COVID-19 Info Fall 2021
We pride ourselves on being a friendly, professional, and student-focused office that will inspire, guide, prepare, and educate you on all things related to your career development.
The staff in the Career Development Center can help students through the decision making process by reviewing individual interests, abilities, personality, and values. Through a combination of exploration, research, and practical experience, you can determine an area of study that suits you best. Your major will not necessarily dictate a specific career path so it’s important to select a major that motivates and interests you!
To start the process, check out the Academic Programs offered at the University of New Haven.
If you plan on attending an Accepted Students Day, be sure to attend the special program for Exploratory Students as we discuss the process for choosing a major and show you all the resources and people available to help in your decision making process.
If you are thinking about graduate or professional school, the Career Development Center staff is available to discuss how an advanced degree will prepare you for a future career.
Through research and exploration, you can determine if graduate school is the right fit for you. We can provide information on researching graduate and professional schools, the application process, and can review personal statements.

There are a number of ways for students to gain valuable work experience, while earning a few extra dollars to pay the bills and enjoy campus life.
Internships are one of the most relevant and important activities a University of New Haven student can undertake. Not only will an internship look great on your résumé at graduation, it will allow you to apply what you have learned in the classroom to the real world, and will also let you bring real-world learning back into the classroom!
