REQUIRED BUNDLE COURSE
Program for Academic and Career Advancement (PACA)
Have you ever heard the term Thriving Mindset? When you have this mindset, you approach life with curiosity. You are eager to learn new things, reach goals, manage your emotions, and develop resilience. With resilience, you can adapt to and overcome obstacles you encounter. Sound interesting?
In PACA (the Program for Academic and Career Advancement), you will work on your Thriving Mindset to learn about what makes you tick. You will explore your motivations and how they impact your goal setting. You will strengthen your belief in your own abilities. And you will reflect on your emotions and how they influence your outlook and actions. These skills will help you succeed in school, at work, and in your personal life. In fact, as you take this course, you may even see your relationships with others evolve and improve.
As you progress in this course, you will find a path to success that is uniquely your own. Along the way, you will discover how mindfulness can keep you centered and focused. You will develop empathy for others—but also for yourself. And these skills will help you make the most out of all that you do.
The material you study in this course may be challenging. Sometimes self-exploration can be uncomfortable. But try not to shy away from that discomfort. Your PACA Coach is available to help you understand and manage your response to challenges. If you encounter topics or assessments that seem overwhelming, be sure to ask for help! Your WGU Academy team is here to support you every step of the way.
