One-on-One Coaching: Schedule an appointment with us to develop a career action plan.

Your relationship with our office should begin in your first year so you can discover interests and strengths and connect your experience at GCU with your future goals. We are also available to assist with transitions after graduation and throughout your career.
Students and alumni are encouraged to take advantage of these additional resources:

  • Career Assessment: What Am I Good At?: This online assessment tool gives you valuable insights so you can articulate your career strategy, prepare a résumé and/or cover letters, perform market analysis, boost interview and networking skills, and generate leads in the marketplace. Additional self-assessment tools are available through individual sessions and group workshops.
  • What Can I do With This Major?: Whether you are exploring multiple majors or searching for information about your chosen field, this site will help you connect majors to careers. Learn about the typical career areas and the types of employers that hire people with each major, as well as strategies to make you a more marketable candidate.

Experiential learning allows you to gain knowledge, develop skills, and clarify values through direct experience and focused reflection. By exploring your interests and abilities, you will be able to make a more informed choice about your career options. These experiences will allow you to observe and apply concepts that you are learning in the classroom to real-life settings and also make you more competitive in today’s job market.

At GCU, we require that you have two experiential learning experiences to graduate. This can include service learning (click above), internships (click above), or a travel or study abroad program. One must be service learning in a designated course other than First-Year Seminar. The other can be an internship, practicum or field study, study abroad experience or a second service learning.

Service is central to GCU’s Mercy Core Values.  Our founder, Catherine McAuley wrote:

“Let charity be our badge of honor.”

As part of the experiential learning requirement, students must complete a minimum of 10 hours of service in a designated Service Learning course, participate in a reflection project designed with an instructor and submit Service Learning Agreement and Timesheet forms through the Experiential module found on GCUCareerLink. (You must log in as a student using your GCU username and password to access the dashboard containing the Experiential module link).

An internship combines a supervised work experience with a structured academic plan that includes learning objectives. An internship may be full time or part time, paid or unpaid. This is an excellent way to gain work experience related to your major and is one of the most important credentials you can list on your résumé. Though a maximum of one internship can be counted toward the experiential learning requirement, you can may participate in as many internships as you’d like.

At GCU, two types of internships are available to undergraduate students:

  • A non-credit bearing internship grants one unit of experiential learning but no academic credit. These are coordinated through our office and require you to sign up, participate in internship orientation, complete an internship contract, and monitor your hours and experiences in the field. Note: The non-credit internship for experiential learning requires a minimum of 120 hours.
  • A credit-bearing internship with a grade of pass or fail which, in addition to credits awarded, also satisfies the experiential learning requirement. You coordinate these directly with a faculty member.
