News release issued by College of the Canyons.
With the College of the Canyons spring semester in full swing, registration is underway for late start classes to help students meet their academic goals.
More than 200 classes will be held in a variety of formats, including online and hybrid (partly online) formats to accommodate the needs of students.
“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 will also be 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 will include 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” set of offerings that include the Introduction to Business class (BUS 100) and the Principles of Marketing class (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 schedule of late-start classes also includes 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.
Spring late start classes will be held through April and May. Registration will remain open until classes are filled.
Students who choose to enroll in a late-start class at the college will also have the added benefit of being classified as a “returning student” prior to the upcoming summer session registration period.
