MiraCosta College Meets Student Demand for Core Courses by Offering Friday and Saturday Classes

MiraCosta College this fall will offer myriad courses on Fridays and Saturdays, a welcome relief for students who have been squeezed out of classrooms because of high demand or work schedules.

Previously, the San Elijo Campus had offered only a few Friday classes and the Oceanside Campus had only offered a handful on Fridays and Saturdays. This fall there will be more than 75 classes split between the campuses.

At the San Elijo Campus, students in the fall will be able to take Friday courses in art, biology, chemistry, English, mathematics, oceanography and psychology, along with courses such as philosophy, communication and film.

The Oceanside Campus will offer Friday and Saturday core courses in subject areas such as English, math, chemistry and many more.

The strategy is two-fold: provide additional core classes that often have long waiting lists, making it difficult for some students to earn a degree in two years; and provide additional days to go to school for students working full-time jobs.
