Interested in earning college credit in just two months from Grossmont or Cuyamaca colleges?

Eight-week courses beginning the week of Oct. 17  are a great way to pick up general education or subject-specialty classes in less time, but at the same affordable cost of regular semester-length classes. The classes ending Dec. 10 offer from one to five credits at a cost of $46 per unit. They consist of traditional, online and hybrid classes, which require both in-classroom and online attendance.

For students looking to complete general education course requirements, classes offered include Cultural Anthropology, Principles of Microeconomics, Composition for College, Modern American History, Elementary Statistics, History of Jazz Music, History of Rock Music, Interpersonal Communications, Introductory Psychology, Spanish and more.

Other courses offer specialized training and instruction such as Cuyamaca College’s Cisco Networking Academy, the Automotive Technology program’s GM-ASEP program and a host of classes offered by the Water/Wastewater Technology program.

Grossmont College’s specialty classes include Introduction to Administration of Justice; a series of Culinary Arts offerings; Nursing Pharmacology, Perioperative Nursing and other nursing courses, and acting and production crew courses in the Theatre Arts program.

Business office training is available in online, self-paced courses such as Keyboard/Document Processing, and comprehensive courses in Excel, Access and PowerPoint. Students can also improve how they learn by enrolling in both colleges’ counseling program offerings in College and Career Success, Study Skills and Time Management, and Career Decision-making.

Lists of class offerings at Grossmont and Cuyamaca  are posted online at www.gcccd.edu/now.

The deadline for registering is Oct. 21.
