Career Pathways


Career Pathways help guide students toward their chosen academic and career goals by providing seamless transitions from high school to college and into the workforce. 

Montana Career Pathways provide labor market information, statewide information about high school programs and dual enrollment opportunities, and links to all of the relevant college programs in manufacturing, health careers, finance, business, welding, and more! Go to MUS to explore these Montana Career Pathways.

To see how these Montana Career Pathways can be applied to specific Helena College dual enrollment offerings and college programs, click on these Helena College Career Pathways. 

Helena College provides many resources to help students plan their pathways and use dual enrollment wisely.  Watch for updated events to explore college programs.  Use a General Studies Worksheet to plan the way your dual enrollment credits apply to a four-year degree or a Career Pathways Planning Worksheet to plan the use of dual enrollment credits in a two-year degree.

Before the beginning of each semester, check for a new “Early College Bulletin” to see on-campus and online college courses available to high school students.

From 2011 through 2017, faculty from area high schools and Helena College developed “Big Sky Pathways” listing all the courses from high school through college in a pathway, with Dual Enrollment highlighted. For example, students who follow the Business pathway can earn as many as 27 credits toward an Associate of Applied Science degree in Business Technology, reducing tuition costs and time to degree.
