University Pathway in Pine Manor College
The Pathway transition program allows Pine Minor College students to study for 1-2 years in the chosen specialty, and then to transfer to any university in the United States (some enrollment is even guaranteed!) and complete the undergraduate program without wasting time and money.
Pathway program works in the following areas:
- Communications, Public Relations
Especially this course is suitable for Russian students and students. Having enrolled on the Pathway, you can quickly improve language and subject knowledge, overcome the academic gap (as you know, American and Russian secondary education has several important differences), develop the necessary skills for comfortable learning in higher education programs. Classes are initially built on the basis of university samples: practically students master the first course of the bachelor's program in the chosen direction, collecting academic credits necessary for further education. In addition, Pathway serves as an excellent program for adapting to life and study on the traditional American university campus, teaching students independence and perseverance.
The duration of the course is 1-3 term (1 academic year = 3 trimester): it is always calculated individually, taking into account the abilities, interests and the initial level of student preparation. The studying of Russian and foreign students is carried out together with the Americans: the development and adaptation process is faster, easier and more efficient.
The service of curators and advisers always helps students to decide what specialty they want to master, which subjects to choose, which faculties and universities will suit them best, how to compile and submit documents to admissions commissions.
