We fill The Space between the theoretical and the practical.
We believe liberal arts students are ideally suited to meet the challenges of a modern workplace that is continually changing and more globally connected than ever before. We created The Space to help get you ready for it.
Out there, employers are looking for exactly what you’re getting here at Wofford whether you’re studying art history, finance or biology: you’re learning to integrate information,to communicate effectively and to develop creative solutions based on a broad knowledge of subjects, ideas and resources. With those fundamentals, you can do just about anything - from landing your dream job to getting into graduate school to starting your own business.
In other words, your major doesn’t define your career. Study what you love. Let us help you prepare for what comes next.
In a marketplace that values speed and efficiency, a college degree is no longer the ticket for entry. You need to show employers, graduate school committees and investors you’re worth the risk of time and resources. You must prove you’ve not only learned things during your years at Wofford but that you’ve also done things.
We give you the space to do things. Through hands-on training and real-world experiences, we can help you develop the skills that directly apply to any professional organization, from non-profits to for-profits and everything in between.
We hope you’ll take advantage of what we have to offer. It’s the only space of its kind at any liberal arts college where you can learn to prepare, impact, launch, consult and explore, and we believe it will give you a unique competitive advantage after graduation as well as enhance your years at Wofford.
