Spring Class Offerings from Forensics, Nutrition and Spanish to Philanthropy at Southern Vermont College

January 3, 2012

This spring, Southern Vermont College is offering a variety of courses that will be beneficial both to traditional learners working toward a degree and to those in the community who want to explore a topic of interest at the college level. Classes start Tuesday, January 18, in such areas as the arts, media, marketing publications, the environment, forensics, writing, language, and philanthropy. The College offers special rates for students over age 60 and for alumni of SVC or its predecessor, St. Joseph College.
Created by SVC’s McCormick Division of Business, the brand new course, “Philanthropy:  Investing in the Community”, is designed to give students a first-hand experience with non-profit funding. In partnership with The Bank of Bennington, students in the class (which meets in the evening) will invite and review grants from community non-profits in need, and award an actual gift from the bank to a designated group.
For those with a desire to explore their artistic abilities, SVC will be offering Basic Drawing, Watercolor Painting, Creative Writing, and Effective Speaking. Classes in Media Writing, Professional Editing, and Editing and Publication Design offer opportunities for individuals to enhance business publications skills.
For small business owners looking to expand their marketing capabilities, Organizational Behavior, Current Environment of Globalism, and Social Entrepreneurship are being offered. For individuals interested in law enforcement, classes to choose from are Criminal Justice, Criminal Law, Criminology, and Police Organization and Management. The popular Forensics course is also available. Other courses of interest would be Conversational Spanish to be offered totally online, SVC Concert Band, Speaking for the Professions, Middle East Politics, and Information Technology.
