Students participating in the Cañada College for Working Adults will receive up to three Associate of Arts degrees in Interdisciplinary Studies with an emphasis in Social and Behavioral Science and/or Humanities or an Associate of Arts degree in Psychology. It prepares students for a variety of careers related to education, law, social work, business, and politics.
All 60 general education credits earned in this program are transferrable to public and private colleges and universities. Students will follow a predetermined plan of classes, eliminating guesswork about degree and transfer requirements.
The third cohort of 35 students will begin Fall 2012. Students enrolled in this College for Working Adults "learning community" will start and complete the program with the same group of students. This provides students a deeper understanding of the courses' subject matter while they build relationships and learn together inside and outside of the classroom. Many of our classes are also integrated to help link and reinforce learning.
Students will receive priority enrollment in College for Working Adult classes...NO WAITLISTS...EVER! They'll receive one-on-one academic advising/counseling from our designated CWA counselor to ensure they get started on the right track and stay on track throughout the program.
Students have been asking for such a program because they can't quit their jobs to attend school during the day and they can't take classes two or three nights a week because of family commitments.
