Transition Strategies 

COE 310 courses guide students in developing personal, interpersonal, and organizational skills, and making decisions about careers, graduate school, finances, and more as they transition to life beyond Elon. 

Courses are one-credit electives with themes geared to majors or career paths; others emphasize professional development topics.

  • Networking skill sets and interactions with Elon alumni
  • Enhancement of their understanding of behaviors and attitudes that will prepare them for success after graduation and engagement in meaningful activities
  • The opportunity to develop a polished resume and cover letter and effective job/internship search skills, and to learn how to utilize the many tools available through the Student Professional Development Center
