Posted 06/29/2017 01:25PM

Misericordia University recently hosted rising high school juniors and seniors on campus for a series of six Career Exploration Camps that provide aspiring collegians 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, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology.

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 also explored Gothic in literature and popular culture.

For more information about the 2018 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.
