Although many student affairs positions require a Masters Degree, you can gain valuable experiences as an undergrad that will give you the experience to help prepare you for a career in Student Affairs.
Attend a Workshop or Conference
You can be matched with a mentor who works in the field of student affairs here at Marquette. A mentor can provide you the opportunity to learn more about the field and network with others.
There is no better way to learn about a career than to set up an informational – style interview with someone on campus whose job intrigues you. There are many different departments to consider and learn about. If interested in either of these opportunities, please email SAcareers@mu.edu.
Join a Student Affairs Organization
Many National Organizations allow students to join. Fees are surprisingly low for undergraduate students, and this opens the door to the resources that the organization can offer you in your decision-making process.
