What Are Career Clusters and Pathways?

Career Clusters represent major groupings of similar occupations and industries within the U.S. job market. Each Career Cluster provides students with an overview of career options and an understanding of the broad industry. Within each of the Career Clusters are various Career Pathways, which are sequences of CTE courses designed to prepare students for careers and continued education.

Learn more about Career Clusters and Pathways in DoDEA's Education and Career Planning Guide - Career Explorer.
