MENDOCINO COLLEGE SPRING 2013 SCHEDULE AVAILABLE ONLINE
Registration is now open for new students for the spring semester at Mendocino College, and the schedule of classes is available for download on the college’s website.
The 53-page schedule contains pertinent details for every class offered through Mendocino College for the Spring 2013 semester, which begins January 22. This includes classes held at the Lake and Willits centers in addition to those held at the main campus in Ukiah. Prospective students will also find a great variety of classes offered online, which is especially helpful for those who require maximum flexibility with their time.
Virginia Guleff, Vice President of Instruction and Student Services, emphasizes the range of classes offered at the college, from basic to transfer-level. Basic skills classes are available in Math and English, designed to meet the needs of any new student no matter what their skill level (placement tests are available through the college’s learning center). Students are empowered to work their way up from the basic skills through to the highest transfer-level classes which can be applied toward a degree at a 4-year school.
Career and Technical Education courses are for those students seeking employable skills with a certificate or degree from Mendocino College in fields such as automotive technology, culinary arts management, and sustainable technology.
Guleff also seeks to reassure those concerned that the arts have been cut from the college’s offerings. “There seems to be a misconception that those have disappeared,” she says, but a glance at the Art and Theatre sections of the schedule reveals over 60 courses, from painting, drawing and ceramics to dance, acting, and even costume construction.
The college also continues to offer courses in core subject areas in social science (anthropology, sociology, history, political science, psychology) as well as science (biology, chemistry, physics, astronomy).
Area residents may have noticed in recent semesters that the college no longer prints and mails the schedule as they did in the past; today the same information is all readily available online at www.mendocino.edu. The website features an online application, online registration and information about services such as orientation, counseling, and financial aid.
