Short-Term Classes Added to Accommodate Working Students

| Canyon Country Magazine | March 12, 2018

College of the Canyons has added more than 100 short-term classes to its spring semester schedule to accommodate the needs of working students, whose busy schedules can make attending classes during traditional hours more of a challenge.

With start dates throughout the months of March and April, short-term classes will be offered in a variety of formats, including weekend classes.

Short-term classes that will be offered at the Canyon Country campus include Water 041 (Water Distribution Operator II), Sociology 101 (Introduction to Sociology), Political Science 150 (Introduction to American Government/Politics), Math 070 (Intermediate Algebra), Math 140 (Introductory Statistics), and Health Science 100 (Health Education).

Courses that will be held entirely online include architecture, geology, anthropology, business, counseling, economics, history, English, math, and music. Online courses provide students with the added benefit of being able to complete coursework from home with the aid of various online resources and tools.

The spring semester schedule of short-term classes also includes several general education, basic skills and career technical education courses. Subjects include: English, biology, early childhood education, economics, computer science, geography, geology, history, mathematics, music, statistics, sociology and culinary arts.


In addition, Business 100 (Introduction to Business) and Business 140 (Principles of Marketing) will be offered on Saturdays.

For students enrolled in an afternoon class during the spring 2018 semester, parking on both the Valencia and Canyon Country campuses will not require a parking permit or pass after 2 p.m. (student lots only).

Registration for short-term classes will remain open until classes are filled.

Students who choose to enroll in a short-term class will also have the added benefit of being classified as a “returning student” prior to the upcoming summer session registration period.
