Academic Program Model

Academic Program Model

Undecided (AA.UND)

The sequence below is for students seeking an associate degree to prepare for transfer to a four-year college or university, but have not yet decided on an eventual career path. The intent of this exploratory curriculum is to allow students to actively investigate their educational interests. By utilizing college resources and following guidance from an Academic Advisor, students should be able to change their major from Undecided to a chosen degree program by the end of the first semester of their second year. Students interested in a workforce ready program should not follow this curriculum; they should contact Counseling Services for guidance on workforce ready curricula.

Other suggestions for Undecided students include:

| Contact their Academic Advisor early and often to begin discussing options at Lake Land College.

| Utilize Career Cruising, a skills inventory available through Career Services that can help students clarify career objectives and interests.

| Engage in Career Counseling appointments, available through Counseling Services, to further explore potential career pathways.

| Learn more about the job market and employment trends in specific career areas through speaking with college faculty who coordinate individual programs.

This program follows Math Pathway #1. Math requirements for a specific major may vary from one institution to another. Please consult with an academic counselor or academic advisor to confirm the pathway that is applicable to your major and transfer institution.
