Registration is now open for spring intersession classes at Grossmont and Cuyamaca colleges. Students attend classes Jan. 3-28 and can complete a course, including those satisfying general education requirements, in just four weeks.
The deadline for registering is Jan. 6. The cost of the courses is the same $46 per unit that applies for regular-session classes, with most classes meeting daily for 2.5 hours and earning students three units.
Registration for regular spring semester classes is also open and ends Jan. 29.
A variety of general education classes are offered during intersession at both colleges, including Art Appreciation (ART 100); Interpersonal Communications (COMM. 120); Early World History (HIST 100); 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 for intersession include online classes in anthropology, economics, intermediate algebra, and sociology. Specialized training and instruction is also offered in Business Office Technology, Administration of Justice and Theatre Arts. At Cuyamaca College, additional GE intersession courses are offered in Art and Business Communication, and specialized training and instruction include classes in Child Development.
Just in time for that New Year’s resolution to get into shape, Grossmont College is offering four levels of Pilates, as well as dance classes in Hip Hop. Cuyamaca is offering conditioning classes for intercollegiate golf and intercollegiate cross country running. 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 a quick 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. Go to WebAdvisor for the most current list of available classes.
