Welcome Second Year Students!
The Second Year Experience (SYE) program is designed to engage all students returning to Morgan State for the second year in out-of-classroom (experiential) learning opportunities to enhance their career readiness skills. By engaging in experiential learning opportunities such as internships, job shadowing, campus to career field trips, study abroad, etc. you are able to acquire the soft skills employers desire. Soft skills include communication, self-motivation, leadership, responsibility, teamwork, problem-solving, flexibility, negotiation and conflict, and time management.
