Career Conversations: Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences


Where can a graduate degree from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences take you? Hear from a panel of three FASS alumni who have gone on to successful careers following completion of advanced studies at Dal. They will share their unique paths and you'll have an opportunity to ask questions.

This event is open to all graduate students from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, as well as any other interested students. Light refreshments will be served.

Career Conversations is a presentation of the Faculty of Graduate Studies, Dalhousie's Office of Advancement and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, and is sponsored by the Bissett Student Success Centre.
