Salt Lake Community College will be offering a new class for fall semester that will help students decide on what career they would like to pursue. This new class will be called Learning Enhancement (LE) 1200. The class is listed under Division of Developmental Education number 4327.
This class may be beneficial for students that are going to school but have not made a decision on what career field to study. It is designed to help students in this decision, as it will help them explore their interests. It will examine areas where students can decide on career fields.
“I know what I want to go to school for,” Brett Shipley, graphic arts design student said. “It is a real interesting course that would help me if I didn’t know what I wanted to take, although this class could help me move on from video game design.”
The class is a one credit hour class, so if a student organizes their schedule right, they can add the class and it won’t cost anything extra. This is because twelve to eighteen credit hours are the same cost, so all a student would have to do is add it to a schedule of twelve credit hours or more.
Fall semester will be the first semester that the course is offered, therefore there is only one class time scheduled. Developmental Education will have to wait until fall semester starts to know exactly how many students are enrolled for the class. More classes will be scheduled as need and interest grows. The maximum enrollment for LE 1200 will be twenty students. At this time there are only eight students enrolled for the class.
“We want to keep the class a little smaller, so that we can provide more attention and support,” Douglas New, Division Chair for Developmental Education said.
The class will be taught by a full time faculty member. The advisor will help students find additional resources of information and tie them in with career fields.
“The class will give students things to think about and be more directed,” New said. “The class possibly may help students not to waste credit hours.”
LE 1200 will be held on Tuesday evenings from 6:00 PM to 6:50 p.m. in Room 422 of the Technology Building (TB) at the Taylorsville Redwood Campus.
