Vocational Psychology

Dr. Bikos received an SPU SERVE grant to collaborate with SPU’s Center for Career & Calling (CC&C) to place two Graduate Career Advisors (GCA) in the CC&C. For the past year, the GCAs have worked 8 hours per week plus participated in a 1-hour-per-week career practicum led by Dr. Bikos.

SPU is committed to integrating the notion of calling into the SPU student experience. Dr. Bikos’ role SPU’s Vocational Task Force provides a strong possibility that our future research projects may have the opportunity to (a) compare traditional career planning workshops with calling infused workshops and (b) have greater access to longitudinal data that allows us to plot longitudinal trajectories of students as they relate to student experiences, vocational identity, and calling.
