Pathways Center

The SBS Pathways Center is here to guide you to success throughout your time at UMass and beyond. Our advisors and programs are crafted to help you explore your academic interests, create a curriculum that works for you, articulate and achieve your goals, become an engaged member of your community, and prepare for life after graduation.

The SBS Pathways Center is home to Exploratory Track Advising, major exploration for all SBS students, SBS Global Education Requirement advising, Academic Deans’ actions/support, Career and Professional Development, and Pre-Law advising. In their work with students, all staff in the Pathways Center consider how to best develop a unique and holistic college experience, ultimately assisting in the development of key competencies for college and beyond. In addition to the advising students receive from the professional staff in the Pathways Center, Peer Advising Interns are SBS students who can provide useful insight into the Pathways framework, which includes academic planning, experiential opportunities, and career and professional development.
