- This major prepares graduates for advanced positions in their respective technical/professional areas.
At Penn College, we believe your educational experience should go beyond specialized skills. Real-world ready means taking a broader approach that builds communication skills, inspires collaboration, and encourages exploration of arts, history, and science.
Perspectives are points of view, offering a variety of ways of understanding, interacting, and influencing the world. Students identify, explain, and utilize the approaches used by academics and professionals to study, analyze, or understand problems, and offer solutions.
Foundations are the practical, intellectual, and social skills: communication, collaboration, critical and ethical thinking, quantitative thinking, and technological literacy that are crucial to every student at every stage of education and at every stage of life.
Tomorrow is in the Making
This program allows apprentices to build on their technical prowess (achieved with the employer) by supplementing it with Penn College’s Core Curriculum, creating additional skilled graduates ready for today’s, and the future’s, technical problems.
