Niagara County Community College (NCCC) has a reputation for providing quality education at an affordable price, and now the institution is offering the added benefit of more flexible learning options for students. Many students today have work and family obligations that preclude them from studying during traditional classroom hours, and NCCC is expanding its course schedule to accommodate the diverse needs of the student population.
“NCCC students need more flexibility in order to accommodate their busy schedules. That’s why our college is offering more online and evening programs than ever before in order to meet their needs and assist in their success,” says Robert McKeown, Vice President of Enrollment Management. The College recently began offering an Associate Degree in Psychology, with the option to complete the program online. Additionally, language and math courses are now available online for the summer of 2020, which many students need as core courses in any program of study. With the easy transfer process to any SUNY institution, NCCC summer courses are a terrific way for students at other colleges to save money and get a jumpstart on their education.
In the fall of 2020, online classes will be offered in a wider variety of topics, including Human Services, English, Sociology, Art, Criminal Justice, and even courses in the Hospitality, Tourism and Culinary Arts Division. Dr. Cindy Oberjosh, a professor in the Humanities and Social Sciences Division will be offering online courses in Cultural Diversity in Chemical Dependency Counseling and Research and Synthesis. “For those with busy schedules or responsibilities that make it difficult to schedule themselves during traditional course hours, online learning offers the same quality instruction towards the same credential as those attending in-person classes on a college campus. We often have students taking courses as refreshers, for personal interest, or as professional development for career advancement. And, we often have students from other campuses in a variety of states enrolled through the SUNY Learning Network. Each semester NCCC adds new courses to our list of offerings,” says Oberjosh.
Students have access to more than 60 degree and certificate programs at NCCC, with guaranteed transfer to a SUNY four-year campus with an A.A. or A.S. degree. To discover more about online learning at NCCC, visit http://www.niagaracc.suny.edu/onlinelearning/
