Career Planning Services

Finding a job and entering the job market for any student, whether in philosophy or theology, can lead to important personal reflections. The objective of DUC career planning services is to help you explore the full scope of possibilities that are available to you as you begin planning your path to a meaningful career.  

Conferences by Professionals on Career Options

Throughout the academic year, we will invite guest speakers, currently working in different professional domains, to share with you their career paths, their professional experience and the benefits of having degrees in philosophy or theology in the current market environment. The goal of these conferences are to widen your perspectives and enable you to seek oppportunities while you are studying, to ease your transition into the workforce. And these conferences are excellent networking opportunities. We encourage you to make links, throughout your studies, between your competencies and employability in various professional sectors.
