The Designing Your Life After Queen’s course uses design thinking to help students from any program plan their life and career after graduation. Developed by Stanford University and offered at schools across North America, this course draws on the fields of philosophy, psychology and career counselling to help you align your personal values with your academic interests, career ambitions and desire for social impact. You will learn to use a design process to create career plans from conception to implementation, explore how career choices can contribute to positive social change, and create prototype experiments that will move you closer to your goals. The course also addresses the realities of engaging in the contemporary workplace and introduces practices that support career development over the long term. Due to the personalized nature of the assignments, this course uses a pass/fail grading system.
