Agriculture and Forestry (Pre-Bachelor)
The preparation course Agriculture and Forestry is a comprehensive, in-depth course designed to help you succeed in the U.S. university classroom offered by Jefferson (Philadelphia University and Thomas Jefferson University). As a student in our BridgePathways Academic English program, you'll acquire the necessary English language skills to succeed in an academic environment. Our curriculum is designed to help you develop your English proficiency in the four communicative skills— reading, writing, speaking, and listening— while strengthening your study skills and strategies. You'll learn quickly from the communicative and student-centered approach in all of our classes. You'll be expected to actively participate in activities, discussions, and projects. We encourage our students to constantly practice English while undertaking various academic tasks.
You'll study a different theme each week. Themes are related to common areas of undergraduate study and will unify all of your classes. This thematic approach allows you to develop both linguistic skills and content knowledge.
