New Vision Specialized Careers

  • Program Description

    The New Vision Specialized Careers program is designed for high school seniors who have a strong interest in pursuing a career that does not fall under our other New Vision programs. Students will participate in classroom instruction, along with real-life career-related experiences observed during rotations that are specifically tailored to their career interests. For example, an engineering student may go to Fulton Boiler Works for a rotation, while a veterinary student may go to the Fulton Animal Hospital. These rotation sites will give students an overview of typical occupational experiences. The classroom setting is held on the SUNY Oswego campus, giving students their first experience as college students. Admission to this program is granted through an application and interview process.
