College Students: Should You List Coursework on Your Resume?


College students often question whether they should list college coursework on their resumes.
  • Probably not unless it contributes something different from what any other student in your major would offer an employer.
  • You can also list coursework if you have very little else to include on your resume and need some padding.
  • Note: It is better to list major course projects you completed rather than names of the classes themselves.
  • Similarly, don’t list course numbers; they will mean nothing to readers outside your university.
