Undecided students urged to explore Intro to Guided Studies

Unique one-credit course July 9-Aug. 13 helps students develop entrepreneurial mindset skills of problem solving and self-awareness

Bucks County Community College invites those who are undecided about their major to explore a one-credit course this summer.

Introduction to Guided Students (GUID 101) helps students explore academic and career opportunities by developing the entrepreneurial mindset skills of problem-solving and self-awareness. It’s a required first-semester course for undecided students at Bucks, and can be adapted to students attending other schools.

At the end of the course, students pick appropriate courses for the next semester, and many are ready to declare a major. In addition, students can earn a digital badge for entrepreneurial mindset.

Intro to Guided Studies is offered in a hybrid format from July 9-Aug. 13. The class meets for six, one-hour face-to-face meetings in Newtown on Tuesdays from 1:45 to 2:45 p.m. The rest of the class time is completed online. In addition to college-age students, the course is available to rising high school seniors.

Students planning to enroll at Bucks in the fall can take Intro to Guided Studies back-to-back with the required one-credit College 101 (COLL 101) course, which meets Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:30 to 1:35 p.m. in Newtown.

Bucks County Community College is located at 275 Swamp Road, Newtown. To apply, visit bucks.edu/summer. For more information on the Guided Studies program, contact the Language and Literature Department at 215-968-8150.
