Pathways

Wallace State was one of 30 community colleges in the U.S. selected by the American Association of Community Colleges to participate in the Pathways Project, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The Pathways Project involves a rethinking and redesign of the student experience from enrollment through completion. Through Pathways, students will have less pressure at the outset to choose a major; rather, they will identify the pathway – Liberal Arts/General Studies, Applied Technologies, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), or Health Science – which best aligns with their strengths and interests. The coursework taken early in their college study will be applicable to any major within the pathway. Later, when they have had a chance to do career exploration in the new GPS Freshman Seminar and have begun to build an e-portfolio, then they will have a better notion of a well-suited major, at the right time for more specialized courses. Pathways is designed to streamline the path to completion, improve success, and reduce wasted time spent changing majors. Students are encouraged contact their advisor to learn more.
