Profiling Opportunity: Pathways to the Future

Offered by : Cell and System Biology

Leverage the creative power of video to envision career possibilities in the life sciences.  As part of a media team, made up of four to eight CSB undergraduates and a media professional, you will create three videos that showcase professional and educational opportunities for students; A Day in the Life shadows professionals in their work life; Want to Know reflects on the value of a life science education through conversations with alumni, mentors and peers; and Spectrum of Opportunity investigates career and learning opportunities where disciplines intersect.  These videos will be available online and through a series of public screenings and discussions, built around the professionals and the topics featured in each video.


Connect / Reflect / Project

  • Develop transferable skills relevant to a range of contexts, including creative thinking, communication, and collaboration.
  • Connect with other Life Science students at all stages of the undergraduate experience from a variety of programs by attending the public screening events. Learn from their experiences and share your own.
  • Understand how the skills and critical perspectives you develop as a Life Science student can apply to a variety of academic and professional contexts.
  • Make a meaningful connection between your Life Science education and the world beyond university.


All life science students.
