The SBS Shadows program provides one-day job shadowing experiences that give students the opportunity to spend time with alumni or other hosts in their place of work. Through observation and conversation, students will learn more about a profession, receive career-related advice, and see first-hand how their experience in the UMass Amherst College of Social & Behavioral Sciences can prepare them for life after college.
