HUDSON, N.Y. — Summer Session at Columbia-Greene Community College begins online May 18, with two sessions planned to offer more than 50 online courses.
Courses in Automotive, Communications, Criminal Justice, History, Mathematics, Political Science, Psychology, Biology, Business, Computer Science, and more are open now to all registering students, with Summer Session I beginning Monday, May 18 and continuing until Thursday, June 25. Summer Session II begins Monday, July 6 and continues until Thursday, August 13.
Gregg Berninger, professor of English at C-GCC and chair of the Faculty Council, explained that the College pivoted from largely on-campus instruction to online delivery in the middle of the Spring 2020 semester due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and now stands poised to deliver summer online courses without interruption.
“In Spring 2020, my colleagues and I proved ourselves to be nimble when learning needed to move from in-person to distance,” said Berninger. “Just think what we can do for students this summer when we’re with them online from start to finish.”
