CLARKSDALE – Balancing school, home and work can be a challenge. However, Coahoma Community College is providing some relief by offering new evening courses in two of its popular Career and Technical Education programs.
Starting this semester, students interested in Automotive Technology and Barbering now have an additional opportunity to advance their careers with the introduction of evening classes.
Currently, evening classes in the Automotive Technology are offered from 4:20 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday while Barbering meets 2 to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday. Both classes are offered on CCC’s main campus.
CCC Dean of Career and Technical Education Anne Shelton-Clark said the new, convenient times gives more students the opportunity to work towards their degree.
“This is a great opportunity, especially for some of our non-traditional students who may work in the daytime,” said Clark.
Clark said the two programs were chosen because of their popularity among students. Before the addition of the evening classes this semester, each program could only accept about 40 students per semester.
“We’ve had immense success with both of theses programs … we actually have waiting lists of students wanting to be admitted,” said Clark. “With such a huge demand, adding these evening courses will allow us to enroll an additional 20 students in each program per semester.”
