Marine biology faculty offer professional development workshops for our students every year!
This series gives our students multiple opportunities each year to informally meet with faculty, graduate students, alumni, and other professionals in the field to enhance and promote their professional development.
Workshop topics range from how to identify specific interests in the field, how to develop an effective CV, how to get the skills and experience needed to land a job in the field, and how to find the right graduate program.
These workshops are designed for ALL levels; freshmen and transfers are particularly encouraged to attend. Attendance is limited to current CSULB marine biology premajors and majors.
If students attend five workshops each year, they receive a Professional Development Certificate!
