Do you ever think about what post secondary school might be like? Where do you want to go? What for? So many questions!
Well, as a grade ten student I have started to plan a few different possible pathways that I could potentially take, all regarding a career based around computers.
The girls pass by a college...
For instance, I have been looking at potential programs that I could do at a college. The thing about college is that you get the practical portion of the career that you are aiming to be qualified in, which is really cool!
I have been looking at a program where you go to college and actually get a university degree while getting the practical college portion too.
Tag! You're it!
As I plan for the possibility of going to college, I have made sure that I am taking enough computer courses and am maintaining an average above 60%, since these are the requirements for a degree in video game developing. I would plan on directly going from high school to college and do a co-op internship to be making just a bit of cash on the side.
The girls move through the city. As Emma continues to talk about her potential college life, Sarah points out a cluster of large buildings.
Ooh look, Emma! That university campus is so big!
Speaking of university, I also have a pathway ready if I choose to attend one!
University is really neat because it focuses more on the theoretical part of a program. I have been looking at a potential degree at Brock University. It will require a few computer courses, an average above 75% and a high school degree of course.
