COUN 129 Puente: Transfer Readiness

COUN 129 Puente: Transfer Readiness is part of the Puente Project and must be taken concurrently with ENGL 105. COUN 129 integrates a seminar-style approach to Transfer Readiness to a CSU, UC, Private or Out of State University. Topics include admissions requirements, transfer planning & selection, transfer tools/resources, Transfer Admissions Guarantees, Associate Degrees for Transfer and university visits. In addition, COUN 129 will focus on a deeper understanding and critical inquiry into educational history/theory of Public Education in the U.S. and how it�s impacted the educational experience of underrepresented students. There will be a capstone interdisciplinary scholarly Latino Social Justice Research Project that will introduce university-level research through extensive critical inquiry, collaborative peer exchange of ideas, research methodology, survey design and analysis, multiple draft reviews, effective writing of research paper and oral presentation. A materials fee as shown in the Schedule of Classes is payable upon registration.
