Spring 2019 Bridge Courses

Spring 2019 Bridge Courses

November 2, 2018 News 0

Skills. Reflection. Transition. Exclusively for Graduating Seniors.

The Bridge Courses are a new series of 1-credit, pass/ fail senior seminars that will help you gain personal and professional skills, reflect on your undergraduate experience, 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.

Join the Red House for a happy hour on Thursday, November 8th at the Bulldog Tavern from 4:30 – 6:30 PM. Stop by to learn more about the Bridge Courses and meet some of the faculty who will be teaching this Spring.  

You can pre-register for these classes beginning on November 5th, and can find them in MyAccess under the subject name “UNXD: Univ-Wide Cross Disc.”

We don’t want cost to be a barrier to any student who wants to take a Bridge Course: the Red House has limited need-based scholarships available for part-time students interested in taking Bridge Courses. If you plan to seek scholarship assistance, we still recommend that you pre-register for your preferred Bridge Course in November, since the courses can fill up quickly. If you are awarded a seat in a Bridge Course through pre-registration, you’ll hear from us in early December about the scholarship process. Email redhouse@georgetown.edu with any questions.
