Grossmont, Cuyamaca colleges offering three-week intersession courses
Registration begins Nov. 16, 2015, for spring intersession classes at Grossmont and Cuyamaca colleges. Students attend classes Jan. 4-22 and can complete a course, including those satisfying general education requirements, in only 15 days.
The cost of the courses is the same $46 per unit that applies for regular-session classes, with most classes meeting daily for 3.5 hours and earning students three units. Registration for regular spring semester classes also begins Nov. 16 and ends Jan. 22, 2016.
A variety of general education classes are offered during intersession at both colleges, including Interpersonal Communications (COMM. 120); Early World History (HIST 100); Early American History (HIST 108); Modern American History (HIST 109); Introduction to U.S. Government and Politics (POSC 121); Introductory Psychology (PSY 120); Public Speaking (COMM 122); and Introductory Sociology (SOC 120).
Both colleges are also offering personal development classes to help students improve their learning and study skills, as well as make good career decisions.
At Grossmont College, additional GE classes include online classes in anthropology, economics, intermediate algebra, and sociology. Specialized training and instruction is also offered in Business Office Training, Administration of Justice and Theatre Arts. At Cuyamaca College, additional GE courses are offered in art and health education, and specialized training and instruction include classes in Child Development.
If physical fitness and health strike your fancy, Grossmont College is offering four levels of Pilates, while Cuyamaca is offering conditioning classes for intercollegiate golf and intercollegiate track and field. Exercise science classes in teaching fitness walking to children, and learning about childhood obesity are also offered at Cuyamaca College, as well as health education classes in personal health and lifestyles.
The short-term courses are an efficient way to satisfy general education course requirements for university transfer, offering a compressed alternative to the semester-length schedule. The longer classroom hours and generally smaller classes also provide more one-on-one time with instructors.
