More Spring Classes Added to Help Students Meet Goals
With the spring semester in full swing, registration is under way for short-term classes to help students meet their academic goals. More than 200 classes are available in a variety of formats, including classroom, online and hybrid classroom/online.
“College of the Canyons is mindful of the busy and demanding schedules of our students,” said Jerry Buckley, assistant superintendent/vice president of academic affairs at the college. “We are committed to helping our students reach their academic and career goals, no matter where they are in life.”
Bundled classes in real estate and business are available to help students build discrete skill sets through paired coursework.
To help working managers advance their skills, Managing Diversity in the Workplace (BUS 126) and Negotiations and Conflict Resolution will be held on Monday and Wednesday evenings, with an online hybrid component.
A weekend “Realtor 101” package of classes includes an interior design course on Home Staging on Fridays, Real Estate Principles and Real Estate Practices hybrid courses on Saturdays, and an online Photography class.
On Saturday mornings, business-minded students can benefit from the “Get Started on Your Business degree” offerings that include Introduction to Business (BUS 100) and Principles of Marketing (BUS 140), which are requirements for many COC business degrees and certificates.
These hybrid classes are also paired with a Business English class (CAWT 115), which is a high-demand class for both business and computer applications majors.
Students can choose to enroll in one or all of the packaged classes.
The spring semester short-term classes also include several general education, basic skills and career technical education (CTE) courses. Subjects include: English, early childhood education, economics, computer science, geography, geology, history, mathematics, photography, statistics, sociology, water systems, culinary arts, and graphic design.
Classes will be held through April and May. Registration will remain open until classes are filled.
Students who choose to enroll in short-term classes will have the added benefit of being classified as a “returning student” prior to the upcoming summer session registration period.
