Walters State Community College will offer evening classes fall semester in Rogersville and Newport. This makes attending college even more convenient and affordable for students who usually have to travel to campuses in Greeneville, Morristown, New Tazewell and Sevierville.
“The college will be offering general education courses at Cocke County High School and at Cherokee High School. This is a great opportunity for residents to take classes close to home,” said Frank Umbarger, coordinator of distance education at Walters State.
Umbarger said the classes are also great for students who prefer evening classes. The traditional classes are also good options for students who may be nervous about returning to school or taking online courses, he said.
“Taking these classes will also save time and money,” Umbarger said.
Walters State faculty members teach the classes and class sizes are small. Students have the same access to the college’s academic and student support services, including free tutoring and online and in-person access to the R. Jack Fishman Library.
In Newport, classes will meet from 6-9:05 p.m. Composition I (ENGL 1010) and Psychology (PSYC 1030) will meet on Mondays. American History I (HIS 2010) will meet on Tuesdays. Computer Applications (INFS 1010), Finite Mathematics (MATH 1630), Fundamentals of Speech Communications (SPCH 1010), and Music Appreciation (MUS 1030) will be offered on Wednesdays. The college plans to offer the second course in sequences like composition and history in Newport during spring semester.
In Rogersville, classes will meet from 6-9:05 p.m. Composition I (ENGL 1010) and Probability and Statistics (MATH 1530) will meet on Monday nights. Introduction to Psychology (PSYC 1030) and Computer Applications (INFS 1010) will meet on Tuesday evenings, with Fundamentals of Speech Communications (SPCH 1010) offered on Wednesday night. The college plans to offer the second course in sequences like composition in Rogersville during spring semester.
