“Owens is excited to complement our current academic offerings with a Summer Weekend College program and provide students with alternative ways to pursue an education,” said Dr. Bruce Busby, Owens vice president of Academic Services. “Expanding our weekend education during the summer months offers greater accessibility to academic options for our students and their career aspirations.”
The eight-week academic course will include introduction to financial accounting, anatomy and physiology, business professionalism, contemporary business, principles of management, introduction to CAD, production drawing, composition, foundations for college and introduction to the humanities.
Summer weekend course offerings also include fundamentals of computing, computer concepts and applications, spreadsheet applications-Excel, marketing, developmental algebra, college algebra, beginning
keyboarding, general psychology, life span psychology, sociology, multicultural diversity in the United States, and public speaking, among others.
In addition to new summer weekend academic courses, Owens last year made available weekend associate degree programs, which allow students to complete their college education entirely on the weekend.
Currently, more than 160 classes are offered in the areas of chemistry, marketing, English, welding, psychology and physics, among other academic curriculum selections.
