Many people are unhappy with their current job situation. But there is an important point to keep in mind- applicants need the education and experience to be ready for that new career and to get that new job. Volunteer State Community College has more than 100 areas of study, including two-year degrees to get students directly into the workforce. Spring classes start on January 18. New and returning students should apply now.
Affordability and flexibility are two of the top needs of adult students. TN Reconnect provides tuition-free community college for adults who don't already have a college degree. People with a degree can apply for scholarships through the Vol State College Foundation. Flexibility comes in the form of day and evening classes in-person, and a wide range of online courses.
The last two years have been challenging for everyone. Students who have stopped attending are encouraged to talk to Vol State staff to work out a plan to come back. There may be options former students have not considered to help them finish their degree work.
This spring COMM 202 Programming and Promotion is being offered in the Entertainment Media Production program. It will feature interviews with the president of programming content at iHeart Media and the former vice president of content for Cumulus and Westwood One, along with interviews with the leading Adult Contemporary consultant in the country, a multiple CMA winner, and the head of digital media and podcasting for Jacobs Media. Students will also do hands-on programming and promotions projects.
