Course Description

COUN 129 Puente: Transfer Readiness is part of the Puente Project and must be taken concurrently with ENGL 110. COUN 129 integrates a seminar-style approach to Transfer Readiness to a CSU, UC, Private or Out of State University. Topics include admissions requirements, transfer planning & selection, transfer tools/resources, Transfer Admissions Guarantees, Associate Degrees for Transfer and university visits. In addition, COUN 129 will focus on a deeper understanding and critical inquiry into educational history/theory of Public Education in the U.S. and how it’s impacted the educational experience of underrepresented students. There will be a capstone interdisciplinary scholarly Latino Social Justice Research Project that will introduce university-level research through extensive critical inquiry, collaborative peer exchange of ideas, research methodology, survey design and analysis, multiple draft reviews, effective writing of research paper and oral presentation. A materials fee as shown in the Schedule of Classes is payable upon registration.

To this end, curriculum, assignments, topics, discussions and themes are integrated between both Fall ENGL 105 and COUN 128 as well as Spring ENGL 110 and COUN 129. As such, students must be registered in both classes concurrently to meet Puente Project course expectations and to maintain the continuity of curriculum between ENGL and COUN courses as required by the Puente Project.
