Career Exploration Program at HCC

For High School Students

July 6-10

BRIDGEPORT – Housatonic Community College will host a career exploration program for high school students July 6-10.

The program will expose high school students to career opportunities and academic requirements in seven career tracks: art, engineering and manufacturing, business, finance, human services and early childhood education, criminal justice and computer technology. Courses in each subject will be taught by faculty experienced in that area and will include hands-on activities to facilitate an enhanced learning experience.

“The program will give specific career information to incoming seniors who are undecided about their future career path,” said Dean of Community Outreach Denise S. Bukovan. “The program also will motivate sophomores and juniors to start thinking about possible career paths.”

“Having a major and career focus when students walk in the door as college freshmen will help them make the most of their college career.” Bukovan said.

Attending the sessions will also introduce students to college life in general and to life at Housatonic in particular.
The seven three-hour courses will be offered twice a day, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. ‑ Noon and 1 – 4 p.m. The fee for one course is $175; $250 for two.

The program is open to all interested students in grades 10-12.
