HCC offering ‘Evening College’ this fall

Hopkinsville Community College will be offering what it calls “Evening College” beginning this fall.

A news release says it will consist of several in-person and hybrid courses.  According to Interim Chief Academic Officer Jim Hunter, the plan is to increase Evening College hybrid course offerings each semester to give working students another option to complete credentials at HCC.

HCC already offers a large selection of traditional, on-ground daytime courses plus a large number of online classes. Officials say hybrid courses can serve as another path to completion of an HCC credential particularly for adult students who desire a more traditional classroom approach, but are unable to enroll in daytime offerings.

Hunter is quoted as saying, “Online courses have been great for those who have full work and family responsibilities. However, we are hearing from many students that they want face-to-face time in the classroom with their instructor and fellow students. Online classes are a great option, but they are not for everyone. The hybrid model offers the best of both face-to-face and online formats with abbreviated classroom time each week supplemented with online coursework that students can complete on a more flexible timeline.”

Registration for the fall semester is currently underway.

August’s Evening College will consist of the following courses:

HIS108 – History of the United States Through 1865 (Hybrid)
