Many students arrive at community college without clear goals for college and career. Once there, they often receive little guidance prior to matriculation, do not meet with an advisor at the college, and accumulate many course credits that do not count toward their eventual program of study—or they drop out of college before selecting a program (Rosenbaum, Schuetz, & Foran, 2010; Zeidenberg, 2012). 

To begin to address these kinds of issues and to help students reach their completion goals, College of the Canyons has created structured pathways that allow students to explore their educational and career options while also making progress toward a credential. 

The pathways for each program within School of Social and Behavioral Sciences are below. Please work closely with your counselor and contact the department chair for the program if you have any questions.
