To address Guided Pathways pillars 1 – Clarify the path, 3 – Stay on the Path, and 4 – Ensure Learning, Ohlone College has categorized our academic degrees and programs into Interest Areas. Interest Areas (or “meta-majors”) are collection of programs that lead to similar career pathways or have similar learning objectives, outcomes, content and/or resources.
Six Interest Areas have been identified, by Ohlone students and faculty, and endorsed by Ohlone’s Faculty Senate. Ohlone Interest Areas are:
- Arts & Creative Industries
- Health & Wellness
- Social Sciences
The process for conceiving, identifying, and developing these Interest Areas involved workshops, town halls, and retreats for students and faculty in 2018 – 2019.
Development of Interest Areas at Ohlone are ongoing. Stay tuned!
