Entering the Workforce

The following sites can be useful for:

  • Searching for a job after you graduate; and (better yet)
  • Researching the kinds of skills and preparation that are required for particular careers so that you can make sure you have these covered before you graduate.

Further Study

Many professional programs (e.g., Law, Social Work, Business, Public Administration) do not require any specific program of undergraduate education. Others are generally more insistent that students have an undergraduate degree in their own or a closely related discipline (e.g., History, English, Psychology, Sociology). Of course, this won't be a problem for you because you must combine your HRHD Honours program with one of the other Honours programs we offer at Laurier Brantford.

Listed below are some programs that appear to fit particularly well with the aims of Human Rights and Human Diversity.
