College of Health Sciences

Welcome to the College of Health Sciences Community!

The Career Connections Center serves students, faculty, and alumni in an increasingly diverse and competitive job market, while striving to connect TWU with employers across the nation. Throughout the academic year, the consultant for the College of Health Sciences facilitates workshops and seminars on career exploration and career readiness skills to help students feel prepared for life after graduation.

We work in partnership with the College of Health Sciences to serve students who are interested pursuing a career in health professions and health education through interactive programs and events. Through classroom presentations, workshops and one-on-one appointments, students are able to expand knowledge of possible career paths, prepare for the workforce or graduate school, and connect with potential opportunities for internships, part time jobs, and full time employment.  Career Connections guides students in maximizing opportunities to gain experience and explore all possible paths that meet their interests, skills and values.
