Registration is currently underway for the fall 2018 semester, with College of the Canyons providing students and community members with access to more than 1,900 class sections in a wide range of academic subjects and career education disciplines.
To help meet the needs of new and current students, the college has also created 35 new and modified programs as well as 286 new and modified courses.
“The needs of our students have always been our main focus when creating or modifying curricula,” said Dr. Jerry Buckley, Assistant/Superintendent and Vice President of Academic Affairs at the college. “Our goal is to help students meet their educational goals, whether it be to transfer to a four-year school or gain new skills.”
Class sections will include courses that most students need to either graduate, transfer to a four-year school and/or meet prerequisites.
Five new associate degree pathways have also been created for students who wish to transfer to a four-year college in a seamless way.
The new degree pathways available this academic school year will include the following:
Environmental Science AS-T Degree
Environmental Studies AA Degree
Public Health AS-T Degree
Hospitality Management AS-T Degree (available spring 2019)
Social Justice Studies AA-T Degree
The schedule also features a wide selection of career technical education courses where students gain the skills needed to work in high-demand fields, such as plumbing technology, electrical technology, and carpentry technology.
In addition, several continuing education courses will be offered to students who would like to gain a new set of skills or sharpen existing skills through courses such as Spanish for Healthcare Workers.
Three new continuing education certificate programs will also be offered for students interested in Workplace Essentials, Management Tool Box, and Customer Relations.
Students will once again have the option of enrolling in courses offered at both the college’s Valencia and Canyon Country campus, as well as online.
Fall semester classes begin Monday, Aug. 20, and run through Saturday, Dec. 8.
As in years past, College of the Canyons will also offer a number of late start and short-term courses designed to meet the needs of working adults. Those courses are scheduled to begin throughout September and October. In addition, for students looking to get a jump start on planning for the spring 2019 semester, a list of available classes is also available on the college website.
Enrollment fees at all 114 California Community Colleges will remain at $46-per-unit, as mandated by the state of California.
Students and community members interested in attending classes this semester are encouraged to visit the class schedule in order to view the current schedule of classes and take the steps necessary to enroll.
