CASS Outcomes

The programs within the College of Applied and Social Sciences offer students a variety of opportunities and feature alumni who have careers in in-demand fields.


  1. Business
    • If you decide to become a business major, you can study disciplines such as accounting, business administration, economics, finance, human resource management, management, marketing, risk management and insurance, and sport business

    • Risk management and insurance is one of our newest programs in business.

    • Last fall, the Mount Union chapter of Gamma Iota Sigma (which is the international fraternity for this major) was chartered. This new affiliation allows our insurance and other business students to attend professional conferences and be given the invaluable opportunity to network with industry leaders. 

    • Mount Union also has an amazing accounting internship program. It is common practice for many firms to hire from their internship pool.  As a result, many students finish their junior year at Mount Union and will have a job waiting for them after they graduate. Our finance majors have also secured internships with PNC Bank and Charles Schwab.

    • A student chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management was also started in Fall 2019 to provide career development opportunities for our human resource management majors and other business majors.

    • As part of a marketing course, students engaged in a project that reached $12,000 in sales in support of Clean the World’s soap recycling mission. The project resulted in donating more than 4,000 hygiene kits to Alliance area not-for-profit organizations.

    • Our sport business graduates have been employed with the Cleveland Indians, Cleveland Browns, Cleveland Cavaliers, San Antonio Spurs and the San Jose Sharks just to name a few. During the spring semester, the Sports Sales Workshop and Job Fair, coordinated by Mount Union faculty, is typically held in Cleveland. This event provided the opportunity for Mount Union and other Universities (with students majoring in sport business or similar fields) to take part in sales workshops facilitated by approximately industry professionals representing major sports teams, from across the country, including the NBA, NHL, NFL, major league baseball, soccer, and NASCAR. 

    • We are also very proud of our students for their academic achievements. Recently, three of our business students received scholarship awards from the Business International Honor Society, Delta Mu Delta.
  2. Computer Science

    Our computer science program is ranked #3 in Ohio and #9 in the Great Lakes Region by College Factual. Last summer, two of our students engaged in fellowship and internship opportunities. One of our recent students was able to complete three graduate level courses and engaged in projects such as compromising an entire hacking lab and creating an enterprise risk management system. Another of our students spent his summer at Cape Canaveral, working for NASA as one of 10 interns.

  3. Education

    For those interested in pursuing a degree in education, we offer a fully accredited program leading to licensure as a primary, middle or high school teacher. We also offer a program for those who may be interested in teaching as an intervention specialist. As an education major, you will be involved in clinical placements or field experiences starting with your very first education course. A number of our education courses are also held on site in local school districts so that our students will have opportunities to interact with authentic data and work alongside our faculty and teachers in the school setting to get a true sense of what the profession is all about. You can also choose to advance your career after your undergraduate tenure by enrolling in our Master of Education program, which features four unique concentrations tailored to your career path.

  4. Engineering

    It is a very exciting time for engineering at Mount Union! Last year we officially launched our School of Engineering which represents a milestone of growth and maturity for our engineering programs. We offer majors in civil and mechanical engineering, which are both accredited. And recently we welcomed three new programs in biomedical engineering, computer engineering and electrical engineering. All five programs represent our four pillars of engineering, which include hands-on learning, communication and leadership, global engineering and business skills and entrepreneurship. Our engineering students not only engage in rigorous academic course offerings but also partner with industry professionals through internship opportunities for which our placement rate is 96%. A few additional highlights include that our global engineering class have spent two weeks in Belize installing a cold-water drinking fountain and constructing a school building. Every recent mechanical engineering graduates performed at least one internship while at Mount Union and 100% of recent civil engineering graduates secured positions after graduation.

  5. Political Science

    Our political science program allows students the option of completing all of their requirements for an undergraduate degree in political science as well as a law degree from either The University of Akron School of Law or Capital University Law School. A program such as this would take six years of full-time study rather than the traditional seven-year track. So, it is something to consider if you see law school in your future. Our students have engaged in internships at all levels of government and with organizations or companies that directly interface with government. And our graduates have gone on to secure employment with professional entities such as the Portage County Prosecutor’s Office, the FBI in Cleveland, and the National Capital Police, just to name a few.

  6. Regula Center

    The College of Applied and Social Science also hosts the Ralph and Mary Regula Center for Public Service and Civic Engagement. The Center’s mission is to promote civic engagement, community outreach and experiential learning to make positive change. The essence of the Regula Center supports the College’s aim to prepare an engaged citizenry poised to encourage social justice in communities near and far.
