Lima, New York- In the spring 2011 semester, Genesee Community College's Lima Campus Center will offer opportunities for students to delve more deeply into career paths in business and criminal justice, and to embrace the arts. The Lima campus is conveniently located on Rte. 15A, at the Crossroads of Western New York, adjacent to Rtes. 5 & 20, as well as Interstate 390. The campus center will offer tracks in Business and Criminal Justice, as well as a Literature offering that focuses on plays and playwriting.
Both Accounting and Marketing will be offered on Monday evenings; Business Communications and Management Principles will be offered on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Marketing will be offered in an innovative “hybrid” environment allowing students to combine classroom and on line studies, thereby completing the course in just eight weeks.
Campus Center dean Monica Mattioli observes, “Combining these courses, our Business students will make significant headway toward degree completion at the Lima Campus. And Marketing appeals to other majors, since there is a marketing aspect involved in so many of today’s careers.”
Criminal Justice majors will enjoy the added convenience of taking multiple classes toward their major course of study, also on site in Lima. Introduction to Criminal Justice, Criminal Law and Crime and Delinquency provide a solid curriculum and launch what can be a very exciting career.
Mattioli noted, “These courses send our students on their way to real jobs in criminal justice and law enforcement. Adding complementary subjects like Human Relations or Drug and Alcohol Abuse rounds out their schedules and gives our students additional skills that they can apply in the field.”
For individuals who are arts-minded, popular courses like Play Analysis, American Sign Language, Painting and Composition are available. As per SUNY policy, adults aged 60 or better can audit most courses tuition-free.
“Our area seniors are taking advantage of the Lima Campus Center as a resource for life –long learning. Anyone interested in auditing should contact us early to confirm seat availability, complete the registration form, seek instructor approval and join us in the journey to learning,” says Mattioli.
She adds, “Our free movie nights and movie matinees have raised awareness among folks of all ages, who visit the campus center and are attracted to the many interesting educational and fun experiences we offer!”
Registration for spring 2011 courses is now underway and classes begin in January, 2011. To register call the Lima Campus Center at 585-582-1226 or visit www.genesee.edu. The Lima Campus Center is located at 7285 Gale Road, Lima.
