UKIAH, CA - Registration has begun for Mendocino College’s six-week summer session, which starts on June 18 and ends on July 27. This year, the college offers a full complement of transfer, recreational and vocational courses.
“In the summers, we try to meet the needs of K-12 students, who may be interested in trying an art course or brushing up on math, as well as college students who need a few transfer credits,” said Vice President of Education & Student Services Meridith Randall. “We also offer courses for lifelong learners, such as ceramics or conversational Spanish.”
For students seeking transferable units, many of which meet general education (GE) requirements at California State University (CSU) and University of California (UC) campuses, the college offers: ANT 201Cultural Anthropology (#8020), ART 201 World Art History I (#8028), EAS 201 Geology with lab (#8098 and 8099), ECO 201 Economics (Micro) (#8100)(online), ENG 200 Reading and Composition I (#8117), ENG 205 Critical Thinking (#8118), HST 211 United States History II (#8146), MTH 220 Statistics (#8168), PSY 205 Introductory Psychology (#8204), SOC 200 Sociology (#8231), and SPE 200 Introduction to Public Speaking (#8239).

The college will also offer BUS 132, or the Summer Entrepreneurship Academy, for the third year. This course, taught in eight days, teaches students how to write a business plan, make financial projections and create various types of marketing -- and gives students three transferable units.
