The Bridge Courses were launched in Spring 2017 as a series of 1-credit, pass/fail seminars to help seniors gain personal and professional skills, reflect on their undergraduate experiences, and engage in discussions about how to lead a meaningful and fulfilling life after graduation. We designed the Bridge Courses for seniors who are seeking opportunities to prepare for the transition from college to the world beyond the front gates in a way that makes the most of their Georgetown education.
In these courses, you will explore skillsets and mindsets not normally found in the traditional curriculum, in low-pressure and relaxed settings. The courses are offered under the themes of Just Communities — with three subcategories — and Purposeful Careers. The Just Communities courses bring added attention to the relationship between your own individual well-being and purpose and that of the multiple communities in which you live and serve. The Purposeful Careers courses support you in developing the senses of discernment and purpose as you embark on career paths of meaning and service.
