Career Pathways

What are Career Pathways?

Career pathways are broad categories of career options that share similar characteristics and employment requirements that call for many common interests, strengths, and competencies. There are six broad career pathways; within each of those are career clusters that narrow down even further to specific career focus areas.

How do I use this information?

As early as high school, students are starting to look at career pathways to identify the classes that they need to take to prepare themselves for employment. Those same career pathways are being used by BMCC students to identify career opportunities supported by the degrees and certificates gained at BMCC. 

The following information describes each of those six career pathways and gives you information to help decide whether or not that is the path for you. As you look through the BMCC catalog  you may notice the career pathway icons  to which that degree or certificate is related. Use these tools to help you plan your college experience and career preparation. By having a plan, you can give purpose to your learning.
