Professional Associations and Specialized Sites


USC Price encourages students and alumni to become active members of one or two professional associations. Professional associations have a mandate to help keep members up-to-date with research and trends in the field. In addition, many associations provide opportunities for networking and professional development training.

Below are degree and industry-specific associations we recommend. This is not an exhaustive list. You should explore organizations that support your career pursuits.
