Summer classes at Vol State are coming up soon and there are several alternatives to choose from, to fit busy summer schedules. Registration is open now. The first option is called Maymester. Those classes start May 8 and end May 29. Each class usually meets for a few hours every weekday. The main summer session starts on May 30 and lasts until August 8. But students can also take summer classes that run for the first five weeks of the summer session, starting on May 30 and for the second five weeks, starting on July 6. Classes are offered in person, online and in a wide variety of subject areas. Students home from university for the summer often take Vol State classes that can apply to their university degree.
A new Maymester course this year is POLS 1030-American Government and Politics. It’s a way for students to get ahead in their college requirements with a quick, intensive session. New classes this summer with different intensive schedules include English 2300, Creative Writing, which will be offered in a three-week course from June 1-June 19, 8 a.m.-11 a.m. It’s a hands-on workshop in writing original poetry, songs, short fiction, non-fiction, and drama. The course will include local field trips, talks with visiting writers, and some online lessons. The class counts as a Vol State Humanities elective. The course Social Problems will also be offered Monday through Friday for the first 3 weeks of June. The general education goal of this course is to provide information which enables students to identify, analyze, and understand the sociological perspectives on social problems.
