The Office of Academic Advising provides
collaboration with academic departments for
students who are applying to graduate programs
in their disciplines.
In Puget Sound’s Dual-degree Engineering pro-
gram, students study for three years in a course
of study prerequisite to engineering. Qualified
students may then transfer to one of our affili-
ated institutions (Washington University in St.
Louis, Columbia University, Duke University, and
University of Southern California) to complete a
two-year degree in engineering.
FELLOWSHIPS AND SCHOLARSHIPS
Our fellowships office provides support and
counseling for students who wish to pursue un-
dergraduate or graduate fellowships, such as the
Fulbright or Watson programs, among others.
HEALTH PROFESSIONS ADVISING
Health Professions Advising provides special
career counseling, committee interviews, letters
of evaluation and application assistance for
students interested in medicine, dentistry,
veterinary medicine, optometry, nursing,
podiatry, pharmacy, and allied health careers.
Students work with pre-law advisors from the
faculty to research law programs, complete
applications, and prepare for the Law School
TEACHING AND COUNSELING PROFESSIONS
The Teaching and Counseling Professions Advi-
sory Committee provides targeted advising for
undergraduate students interested in pursuing
graduate work or a career in education.
Puget Sound Career-Planning Resources
Students are on a path of career discovery from the
day they arrive on campus. We help students acquire the
skills, contacts, and experiences they’ll need to build a
meaningful career after college.
Career and Employment Services (CES) is a one-stop career engage-
ment center that integrates job, internship, and career-planning
resources for students seeking part-time, full-time, on-campus, off-
campus, summer, or work-study opportunities.
CES guides students as they define their interests and explore pos-
sibilities, helping them channel the passions that emerge in the
classroom into career paths. We partner with students to help them
identify and successfully compete for opportunities.
The ASK Network features more than 2,700 Puget Sound alumni
from a variety of professions who participate in career programs,
serve as professional mentors, and are available to consult with stu-
dents about careers and graduate schools.
Through the Nationwide Internships Consortium and the Liberal
Arts Career Network, Puget Sound connects students with thousands
of regional and national internship opportunities in virtually any aca-
demic discipline and student interest. About half of the Class of 2012
participated in an internship.
In addition to hosting large-scale events such as career fairs, net-
working receptions, and resume workshops, CES partners with
academic departments to create specialized programming. CES
targets every academic department on a rotational basis to ensure
we connect periodically with faculty and students across all majors.

meet their career goals.
