Ventura College’s new Executive Vice President Patrick Jefferson is changing the way the class schedule is organized starting this fall. No longer will there be daily classes; instead classes will be held during two day a week blocks with Fridays reserved for 3 unit classes meeting for 3 hours:
- 8:00 AM
- 9:30 AM
- 11:00 AM
- 12:30 PM
- 2:00 PM
- 3:30 PM
- 4:30 PM (5-unit classes only)
- 5:00 PM (4-unit classes only)
- 5:30 PM (3-unit classes only)
- 7:00 PM
Also coming soon will be changes to the course offerings in English. There is a movement to offer a 4 unit English 1B (critical thinking through literature) course to meet the transfer needs of English majors (this will be an option; as I understand it, the 3 unit class will also continue to be offered).
A greater variety of classes in English will also be available for example, British and American literature, Aesthetics of Film, Creative Writing, Multicultural American Literature and/or Shakespeare.
In order to anticipate student interest, we’d appreciate the completion of this short survey:
So what do you think about having more English classes? What do you think about the new schedule?
