Publishing Opportunity


Career Convergence Image

Dr. Williams is the newest Field Editor for Career Convergence Web Magazine. Published by the National Career Development Association, this peer-reviewed monthly publication addresses a wide variety of topics for career practitioners and educators.

Dr. Williams is currently seeking graduate students who would like to submit a brief article (no more than 950 words) on the topic of parenting and career (other topics can be considered as well). Perhaps students can team up and submit a joint article, Dr. Williams can help you brainstorm and edit prior to submission. To learn more about submission requirements and departmental submission areas, please visit:

She will meet with students prior to winter break to brainstorm, as well as in January, for a potential early or mid-February article submission timeline.


Registration for Spring Courses

Please register for the spring semester, if you have not already done so.

Our goal is to help you move through the program at a steady rate, but it may not always be at the pace in which you thought you could go.  Some classes may fill early, and you may need to adjust your schedule a bit.  Some classes may be offered in a mode (online or on-campus) in which you can not take during a given semester, so you may need to adjust your plan/schedule with your advisor and take it the next time it is offered in your needed mode.

Keep in mind that any plan you develop with your advisor is always subject to change based on course availability.

Please note a few things:

  • There is no guarantee that the courses will be offered every year as listed. You should re-visit your plan with your advisor every semester as schedules are released and advising takes place.
  • Campus students should take on-campus courses when offered.  Online students can not take on-campus courses. The sequencing of how and when courses are offered will impact how you progress through the program.  You will want to pay very close attention to the sequencing.  You will possibly need to revise your current plan of study.
  • Some classes are only offered online.  Please refer to the course sequencing document found on the student website.
