Career Clusters

CNM believes that students are most successful when they begin their education with a career goal in mind. CNM uses career clusters and pathways to help students identify, plan and achieve their career goals.

  • Career clusters are groups of careers that share similar skill sets and related occupations.
  • Career clusters organize careers so that educators and students can target the education and skills needed for specific jobs.

For more information regarding Career Clusters and Career Pathways, go to the Program Information section of the new online catalog.
