Colt Bearden, MBA

“The ebb and flow of the MBA Cohort program allows you to flourish in your strengths and help your team. And when you find a class you’re not as strong in, you have your peers to teach you through.”

  • Careers in Informal Science Education

    Many trained scientists focus on helping non-scientists get excited about science. Their profession is called Informal Science Education (ISE) and it takes place in non-classroom settings: museums, science centers, and more. It’s voluntary – the learners want to be there – and is driven by human curiosity. The Versatile PhD is hosting an online panel that will look at some careers in Informal Science Education for STEM PhD's. During the week of February 23-27, an asynchronous web-based panel discussion with people representing non-profits, science centers, and government agencies will answer all your questions about this exciting field. 

    Take a look at The Versatile PhD to start exploring careers. If you've never registered for the site click here to register through the UT Arlington membership.
