Misericordia University recently hosted rising high school juniors and seniors on campus for a series of seven Career Exploration Camps in order to provide them an opportunity to experience and learn more about exciting professions and residential life on a college campus.

The Career Exploration Camps at Misericordia University are a popular destination for students who want to explore academic camps in biology, chemistry-biochemistry sciences, communications and media, literature, nursing, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology. Space is limited in each camp and registration is necessary.

The Literature Career Exploration Camp for rising high school juniors and seniors provides an opportunity for students who have a love for stories, poems, novels, and the stage to work with Misericordia faculty and students in a variety of workshop settings, including literature in the multi-media age, literary adaptation, literature and pop culture. The camp explores literature from around the world, including American, multi-ethnic and English literature, and looks at its use in popular culture.

For more information or to register for the 2016 camp, please contact Patrick Hamilton, Ph. D., associate professor and chair of the Department of English, at (570) 674-8020 or at phamilto@misericordia.edu.
