Vocation and Professional Exploration

This page features a long list of resources you can use to help you learn about Vocational/Professional paths you might want to look into as a student at SPU. Your instructors will occasionally assign you one of these vocations to use in a Unit Vocation assignment, so make sure you check in with your instructor about which of these categories you should be looking at... Otherwise this page is a resource to you to explore as you see fit!
