What SP3 Is

The Science Professional Pursuits Program (SP3) is a three term, two-credit professional development program which provides College of Science undergraduates the tools and guidance necessary to identify, assess and compete for experiences beyond the classroom that accelerate their professional and academic goals.

What Makes SP3 Special

SP3 is a dynamic, community-centered learning environment that blends online content, in-person workshops, events, and 1-on-1 coaching. Improve your professional and communication skills through group exercises, personalized coaching, mock interviews, and interactive learning. SP3 instructors and coaches bring their STEM-focused expertise spanning the industrial, academic research, healthcare, and non-profit environments to help you develop your career marketing package.    

Who SP3 is for

SP3 is open to all College of Science undergraduates in good academic standing with sophomore or higher standing.
