There is more than one way to find success in college and the path to getting there is different for every student. This class will help incoming students define their individual goals and connect them to the resources needed to achieve these goals. Through activities and exercises students will discover the many academic and co-curricular activities available at UMass and begin creating their own roadmap to graduation.
There are many pathways to success in college and we encourage students to map out their own way to get there. This class will help incoming students define their individual goals and connect them to the resources needed to achieve them. It will also help students understand the vital nature of the fields within social and behavioral sciences and how SBS majors, and a range of other options at UMass, can open many doors.

This course is for SBS who want to learn to teach their peers to be successful in college. Students assist a primary instructor in the teaching of a First Year Seminar that meets weekly throughout the semester. In addition, some assignments will occasionally require working with the FY students outside of class. Students in this class meet weekly in their own seminar where they discuss issues around classroom management, teaching techniques, and organizational skills, such as working with Moodle.

This course is highly-participatory and designed for SBS sophomores to explore and plan their SBS Pathways ? from college to career ? as they: 1) reflect on the intersections among their academic, personal, civic, and professional values and aspirations; 2) collaborate with classmates to learn and practice skills that will allow them to translate their academic, co-curricular, experiential, and work-related accomplishments into purposeful careers, service, or further study; 3) cultivate the skills and vision of engaged and ethical leadership; and 4) develop a viable and personally meaningful plan and ?toolkit? of concrete professional development materials to pursue their evolving goals. Although the instructor and invited guest experts will present information during class, students will also receive background information and prepare materials as homework outside of class so that much of our classroom time can be devoted to mutual mentoring through teams working with the instructor and invited guest experts in particular topics. Students will be expected to work together to solve problems, practice skills, offer constructive feedback, and develop ongoing, mutual mentoring relationships with their teammates.
