ACS 151: Student Success: In and Beyond the Classroom

online available

In this course students will build connections between academic skills, career development practices, and personal success. Using self-assessment tools and journaling, students will develop an awareness of personal strengths, interests, motivations, learning preferences, and skills. Students will apply the SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time bound) goal setting technique to establish short- and long-term goals, utilize a cognitive model for decision-making to narrow down career and educational choices, conduct career research, and engage in career preparation activities. Students will practice self-management techniques and academic skills as well as identify support networks and relevant college resources. Finally, students will reflect on and articulate strategies to achieve personal, academic, and career success. Specific sections designed for military veterans.
