FAQ:

  • Who can sign up? The program is for continuing students (freshmen, sophomores, and juniors) in the College of Arts & Sciences. Pre-majors who intend to declare an A&S major are also eligible. Students graduating in spring or summer 2015 are NOT eligible.
  • What is the program? The KORU@UW A&S program begins with an assessment of your skills which will prepare you to engage in the professional world. It will help you think proactively about all the opportunities you have, and reinforce the value of our majors and the skills associated with them. It will culminate in an employer challenge that lets you put your strengths to task with a local organization.
  • Why should students do the KORU@UW A&S program? We believe there are benefits to getting more students thinking about post-graduation plans earlier. We also hear students say “what am I going to do with a SOCIOLOGY degree?” and we know they worry about choosing a major they love that isn’t necessarily deemed “valuable” in terms of career prospects. This program is the first of a number of new initiatives the College of Arts & Sciences will embark upon with a variety of partners. KORU@UW A&S is particularly well-suited for students wanting to grow and develop professional skills and networks quickly. It is also a perfect place to develop a better understanding of how the next steps could unfold before and after graduation for students concerned about professional opportunities.
  • How much does it cost? It is $795, and there is financial aid available.
  • When and where is it? There are two sessions and both will take place on the UW campus. Housing is available for those who don’t live in the Seattle area.
  • Session 1: Aug 17-28, 2015
  • Session 2: September 8-18, 2015.

Do you earn credit for the program? No, this is not an academic course.
