Want to appreciate the challenge of accurate weather predictions? Understand world events? Or improve your business communications? You can learn all of these things and more with late start, 12-week classes at GCC. Register now for the session which begins Feb. 12.
GCC offers more than 30 classes in a variety of subjects during the 12-week session with many courses offered online. Here are a few of the options:
* Introduction to Meteorology (MET101): Stop blaming the weatherman and learn for yourself how to read weather maps and charts; how to observe, study, and predict storm systems; and how fronts develop, as well as thunderstorms and tornadoes.
* International Relations (POS203): Examine interactions on the global stage and discern recurring patterns including the rise and fall of great powers. This online course is taught by Professor Charles Scruggs and will cover everything from nuclear proliferation to terrorism.
* Business Communications (BUS106): Explore integrated communications and strategy as best applied in a business context. This online course is taught by Professor Lauren Paisley.
