November 17, 2003
(Torrington, WY) In an effort to accommodate busy schedules and appeal to a wider audience, Eastern Wyoming College announces new classes being offered in the spring 2004 semester that starts on January 15, 2004. Community Education is making changes to the way computer classes are offered for the upcoming spring semester. Self-Directed Studies with flexible enrollment and open labs are being offered on Tuesdays from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The courses may be started at anytime between the start and end dates for the course with recommendations that you allow a minimum of 4 weeks for each credit hour. Courses being offered in the Self-Directed Studies, and taught by Kristi McGuire, are Windows 1 from January 27-April 6, MS Office Advanced from February 3-April 27, Outlook 2003 from February 10-April 20, and World Wide Web Authoring from February 17-April 27.
Also newly offered is Introduction to Rural Entrepreneurship taught by Rick Vonburg. This class is for anyone interested in being an entrepreneur. Personal assessments, group-oriented activities, and personal development exercises will be used to develop and expand student's entrepreneurial potential. This class will be offered Monday nights from 6:00- 10:00 p.m. from March 22-May 7, 2004.
Biology Instructor, Nick Roster, announced a change in the format of the genetics course, BIOLOGY 2200. The three credit hour class is a study of genetics and inheritance. Roster states, "While it will still deal with DNA replication and gene expression, it will have a more human emphasis to it. Rather than looking at how lac operon genes work in bacteria, we will investigate human heredity and issues involved with the human genome project. Genetics of cancer will be discussed, and other interesting subjects like new and emerging gene technologies. Roster hopes this course will appeal to a broader array of students beyond biology majors and suggests it would be a great course for pre-Nursing, psychology, sociology, and criminal justice students. It would also be appropriate for students interested in learning more about human genetics.
