Undecided about first semester classes?
Don’t be overly concerned if you are undecided about your major or what classes to take your first semester. Many students “explore” when they first start college.
Some first-semester suggestions:
“College Success” Course
Psychology 5, “Intro to Career and Life Planning,” for help deciding on a career
Orientation 1, “College Success,” to improve your study skills
English Course Reading and writing are essential to success in almost all college classes. All degree, certificate and transfer programs at BCC have an English requirement. Sign up for the English course rec- ommended from your assessment.
Math Course Do you need to review the basics? All degree, certificate and transfer programs at BCC have a math requirement. What math course was rec- ommended after assessment? Get started early!
Computer Course Computer literacy is a requirement for the occu- pational AS degree and all BCC certificates, as well as for many jobs. Consider taking an Internet class, such as Computer Science 28, “Exploring the Information Superhighway.”
General Education Course What subject interests you? Take a GE class in psychology, astronomy, history, sociology or one of many other subjects. Make sure you have met any prerequisite for the class first.
Personal Interest Course Take something that appeals to you! BCC offers courses in art, child development, com- puter graphics, music, office skills, photography and physical education, to name just a few.
