What will I learn?

This pre-major is designed for the student who plans to transfer to a Florida public university as a junior to complete a four-year Bachelor’s degree in Dance. If this pre-major transfers to a limited-access program, you are responsible for completing the specific requirements of the institution to which you will transfer as completion of this pre-major does not guarantee admission to an upper division limited-access program.

Start Right

Degree-seeking students enrolling at Valencia College for the first time will have a limited range of courses from which to choose for their first 18 college-level credits. Within the first 18 college credit hours, you will be required to take SLS 1122 (3 credits), ENC1101 (3 credits), and a mathematics course appropriate to your selected meta-major (3 credits). The remaining courses should be chosen from the General Education Core Courses in humanities (3 credits), science (3 credits), or social science (3 credits), and/or the introductory courses within the A.A. Degree Pathways (or articulated pre-majors for those tabs).

Math Pathways

A Math Pathway is the recommended math course sequence that leads to completion of the General Education math requirement that a student would take within his/her Meta-Major. The Meta-Majors are a collection of eight academic clusters that have related courses. The intent of selecting a Meta-Major is to help you choose a major and degree based on your interests, knowledge, skills and abilities.
