Learning Pathway

Coordinator: Wei-Chen Hung

From the moment we’re born, our brains are taking in information, sorting through it, deciding what is important and what isn’t, and making connections for the future. Learning is a never-ending cycle that’s important to our studies as well as our everyday lives. With influences from our culture, history, sociology and our own inner workings, our learning styles are just as unique as we are.

Learn how you process information best, become more flexible in how you approach problem solving and be more accepting of other ideas and thought processes.

Work with your advisor to select one course from each category below to earn your Learning Pathway focus (all are three credit courses).
