Career choices are many for two-year degree graduates

11/12/2009 —
Individuals considering a college education or looking to change careers will be surprised to learn how many career options they may have by earning a two-year college degree. Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus is holding a special open house on Thursday, Nov. 19, from 6-8 p.m. in the Williams Building, titled “Think Two-year, Think Penn State.”

The program will focus on the campus’ two-year degree programs in Business, Engineering Technology (Architectural, Building Environmental Systems and Electrical), Human Development and Family Studies, Information Science and Technology, Mining Technology, Nursing, and Science.

Apryl Kadish, a Penn State Fayette admissions counselor, says, “Traditional-age students, as well as adults, may not realize that they can often fast-track into a career with a two-year degree and build from there once they are employed in their field or industry. It is one option an individual can consider and many of our students have had good success using this strategy.”

Penn State Fayette faculty, admissions counselors and student aid counselors will be on hand to answer questions. The $50 application fee will be waived for prospective students who apply to Penn State at the event.

Register for this event online at www.fayette.psu.edu (under Admissions), by e-mailing feadm@psu.edu, or by calling 724-430-4130.
