Career Education and Development

The Office of Career Education and Development at Bryn Athyn College helps students identify, create and pursue meaningful careers that will draw upon their talents, interests and skills as well as focus on their spiritual and moral lives. We assist students in portfolio preparation, internship placements, career counseling and job searches.

We work in partnership with our Student Employment Program (SEP) and our Alumni Relations office.

The College offers a variety of events throughout the year to help prepare students for success in the workplace. (Be sure to check back periodically for new events that have been added.)
