Get Career Ready Through Canvas


The UD Career Center (UDCC) is now providing undergraduate Blue Hen students the opportunity to develop career readiness through Canvas modules. Focused on providing access to personal and professional development activities, career education resources and life design exercises, these modules can be completed as a series or individually. The UD Career Center Canvas modules are designed to help prepare Blue Hens for life at UD and beyond.

The Career Center works to empower all students to develop and achieve their professional aspirations. As students work to define what those aspirations are, they can use the UDCC Canvas site to develop goals, refine their internship and job awareness skill sets and establish a path to their success. These modules will serve as a complement to student coursework and can help students connect the dots between the classroom and the working world.

Each module comes equipped with an introduction (posted as a defining question and answer), learning outcomes, videos and resources and life design exercises to help students assess and take next steps. Modules are designed to be completed in 10 to 20 minutes.

In keeping with the University of Delaware’s Strategic Plan and the Strategic Plan Pillar: Expanding Student Access & Success, the UD Career Center has created a Canvas site that allows every undergraduate student to have equal access to career and life design resources.

No. The UDCC Canvas Site is a free resource provided by the Career Center. It is not an academic course, there is no credit/grade association and it will not appear on your transcript.

While there is no credit/grade associated with the UDCC Canvas site, faculty/instructors may decide to incorporate one or more modules into their academic courses. If a faculty member incorporates a module, completion of that particular module as part of a class may impact your course grade and therefore your GPA. We encourage students not to wait and see if a module is a part of their major/program, and instead move through the modules independently to help further post-undergraduate goals.

You have been enrolled to ensure all undergraduate students have equal access to career and life design resources. Unless assigned by a faculty/instructor as part of an academic class, you are not required to complete any of the Career Center Canvas modules.

Modules have been designed as independent learning opportunities.

If you complete a module on your own and a faculty/instructor assigns it in their class, there may be an additional assignment connected to the course that builds on what you learned in the module. You should therefore plan to speak with your instructor about completing the work associated with that module.

If you complete a module and still have questions, please feel free to log into Handshake and schedule an appointment with a career counselor. General questions might also be answered during drop-in hours.
