TJC will offer classes on Saturdays for the Fall 2018 semester.
Saturday classes offer alternatives for those unable to attend college during a traditional time frame, desiring to augment a traditional class schedule, or those who want to add classes to their day, evening or online schedules.
Saturday classes are ideal for stay-at-home parents, people seeking advancement while working full-time, those who want to accelerate their academic progress, or anyone whose personal or professional responsibilities make it difficult to attend regular weekday classes.
The schedule is comprised of five Core Curriculum courses—Arts 1301, English 1301, History 1301 and 1302, and GOVT 2305—which work with almost any of TJC’s majors and can easily transfer to four-year institutions. Students may take just one or two courses or could opt to take as many as four, which would represent 12 semester credit hours—or full-time status. Saturday classes also include an online component.
“TJC wants to make it easy for the people in our community to get the education and training they need at a time that is convenient for them,” said Dr. Linda Gary, TJC’s Dean of the School of Humanities, Communications and Fine Arts. “Serving the people in our community from all walks of life is a high priority, and we feel that offering the Saturday classes is a great addition to our academic programming,” she added.
These Fall 2018 Saturday courses begin on August 25 and run through December 12. Saturday classes run from 7 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., and each class is an hour and 15 minutes.
