UNE Online Students
Are Career Ready
In a survey, the majority of our students shared that their top reason for pursuing a graduate education was career advancement or a career change. We recognize and incorporate this goal at every step of their academic journey: our curricula give students high-quality educations, and our career services help ensure that our graduates can realize a greater return on their educational investment. Plus, as the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment in community and social services will grow 14% by 2026 (above the average job growth prediction of 5–9%), our students are primed to fulfill marketplace needs. Learn more about the graduate programs that can fulfill your career goals today.
Jesse Bell, MPH
Jesse, a GPPH alumnus, knew both where he wanted to take his career and how to find out what he didn’t know about the journey. He explains how students can embrace the inherent opportunities found in graduate education: “Every professor I’ve had has been perfectly willing to email me, talk to me on the phone, and connect… You’ll find professors that you like more, and you’ll interact with them more. If you have career goals and aspirations, but you don’t understand what you need to do next, ask your professor. These people have been working in the field for years. You definitely want to tap them as a resource. The worst you could get is a ‘no.’ And I’ve never gotten a ‘no.’” Read Jesse’s story.

Throughout each program, UNE Online students have ample chances to implement their newfound knowledge in practical career applications.
