Note: The course descriptions that follow are alphabetized by course alpha and number (i.e., from AC 100 to WT 100 ). They are also grouped by fields of study. Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) at the course level, follow these course descriptions. SLOs at the course level describe what students should be able to perform, apply, or produce in relation to how and what they have learned. In the course SLOs that follow, clear and intentional expectations are laid out, particularly as they define the goals of student learning experiences. In a nutshell, they specify what students should be able to know, do, or value after participating in planned learning activities.
With this catalog, continuous efforts to revisit all curriculum documents so that SLOs become integral components of each and every course at the College have been completed. This effort will continue for all new courses.
The following numbering system denotes courses that are conducted under special or unique arrangements:
–190,–290 SPECIAL PROJECTS (1-6) Courses for individual students including special studies, individual research, and special projects.
–192,–292 PRACTICUM COURSES (1–6) Guided work experience supervised by a qualified faculty member or project director to whom the student reports at regular intervals dealing with various applied aspects of a program of study.
–198,–298 COOPERATIVE EDUCATION/WORK-LEARN (1-6) The Cooperative Education program provides an opportunity to qualified certificate seeking students (–198) or associate degree-seeking students (–298) to receive credit and paid work experience related to their vocational/technical fields of study and individual interest within that field. The training plan (learning experience) for –198 will be at the entry level training position and for –298, the training plan (learning experience) for this course will be at a more complex level compared to –198. Prerequisite for –198 and –298: Completion of program requirements and permission by the department chairperson and Work Experience coordinator.
After the course descriptions, there is a notation about the frequency of offerings, i.e., Spring only, Fall only, or As needed. Summer courses are also scheduled as needed. However, the College always reserves the right to cancel courses, due to low student enrollment or other justifiable reasons.
