Fall Classes Range From the Basics to the Bewitching

New Classes Debut This Fall

The new school year that begins August 26 at Western Nevada College will provide students with fresh opportunities for class offerings leading to a degree, certificate or certification. Some of the new and interesting courses that are catching students’ attention include Faith, Witchcraft and Magic (ANTH 215) and Spanish for Heritage Speakers I (SPAN 226), as well as Shop Mathematics (MATH 110) and Technical Communications I (ENG 107).

Faith, Witchcraft and Magic class will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays with Professor Hal Starratt. The class provides an overview, scientific examination and comparison of world religious beliefs. It provides an awareness of the wide spectrum of cultural and social variations throughout the world while stressing characteristics that are shared by all human beings.

Cecilia Merchan will teach Spanish for Heritage Speakers I, which is deigned for Spanish-speaking students who desire to improve their literacy in the language. Students will study and practice basic Spanish grammar so they can improve and develop their written and oral communication and reading skills while exploring some of the more intriguing and important aspects of the culture.

New classes are also designed to target the skills necessary for technical careers. In Shop Mathematics, Professor Richard Arrigotti will cover proportions, measurements, geometry and algebra for students seeking vocational and technology-based degrees. In Technical Communications I, students will learn the style of writing used to create reports, manuals, proposals and other documents required in technical fields.

Fall classes begin Monday, Aug. 26. Students can register now at my.wnc.edu. To meet with an academic advisor, contact Counseling Services at 445-3267.
