Minnesota Career Clusters & Pathways

The Minnesota Career Fields, Clusters & Pathways chart graphically depicts the organizing framework of the foundation knowledge and skills for various career fields. After various surveys and tests, students can identify which career cluster area best matches the knowledge, skills and abilities.

Career clusters represent a grouping of occupations and broad industries into a national classification of 16 clusters that are based upon common knowledge and skills. Career clusters include hundreds of occupations that may be grouped into pathways around which educational programs of study can be built.
