Year Three Pathway: Vocation

Year three explores the expression of your calling.

What should I do? This question is perhaps the one you’ve asked yourself most frequently during college as you try to choose the right major to chart a career path that will shape your life.

Ideally, vocation is your chosen engagement in the world as an expression of your identity and purpose. It is the context through which you pursue your calling. Whereas your identity and purpose are unchanging, vocation is flexible to meet the changing needs of the world and the circumstances of your life.

The way you use your gifts can look different over time. So, while choosing a major is important, it’s just as important to think about how to use your gifts and talents to make a difference in the world around you.

During year three, Faith + Work Fellowships and service opportunities will help you better understand how to use your gifts through spiritual formation opportunities and an examination of cross-cultural engagement and reconciliation.
