The term Nontraditional Careers refers to jobs that have been traditionally filled by one gender. Nontraditional occupations are those in which one gender make up less than 25% of the total number of workers. Examples are males in Nursing and Childcare Development and females in Automotive and Distribution Management.
Promoting nontraditional career opportunities opens doors for every individual and breaks the mold of expectations in an atmosphere free from stereotypes of gender and jobs. The colleges provide support services to special population students including non-traditional majors in an effort to alleviate barriers that hinder successful completion of courses and employment.
