DISCOVER THE MONMOUTH ADVANTAGE
Our multi-faceted approach to career success
Pursue your passions under expert guidance
With a student-to-faculty ratio of 11:1 and two-thirds of classes having fewer than 20 students, your professors will know you and take a personal interest in your success. Over 85% of faculty possess a Ph.D. or other terminal degree. This expertise, together with an understanding of your interests and abilities, leads to better advising and a more transformational college experience. Faculty consider it their professional responsibility to prepare you for the next stage in your journey, whether it is a continuation of their education or entry into the career marketplace.
Broaden your experience through active learning
You will be encouraged to participate in an internship or an off-campus study program during your time at Monmouth. Internships can provide a head start into a profession or a way to experience careers of possible interest. In either case, the Wackerle Career & Leadership Center is an invaluable resource to finding such experiences. Additionally, some academic programs highly recommend internships, and professors frequently refer students to internship opportunities that former students found valuable.
Increase your market value by building foundations
You will build the foundations to your career by taking advantage of all that Monmouth College has to offer. This includes outside-the-classroom experiences that lead to greater ease in public speaking and superior written communication of your ideas. While still a student, you may choose to join a professional organization based on your career objective (e.g., the Association for Computing Machinery or the American Chemical Society). You will also have opportunities to meet visionaries and industry leaders, including successful Monmouth alumni who are eager to assist students. The career services offered by the Wackerle Career and Leadership Center are also crafted to extend learning and skill-building beyond the classroom and assist in building career foundations for life.
