Bunker Hill Community College Offers College Courses in Everett
Wednesday, September 2, 2015
Beginning this fall Bunker Hill Community College (BHCC) will offer courses for college credit in the fields of healthcare and criminal justice in Everett, Massachusetts.
“By offering college courses in Everett, Bunker Hill Community College provides Everett residents with convenient access to higher education,” said James F. Canniff, Provost and Vice President, Academic Affairs and Student Services.
The courses will be offered at Everett High School, located at 100 Elm Street. The allied health courses include Vital Signs (AHE-1014-EH) and Medical Terminology (NHP-180-EH). The criminal justice courses include Criminal Law (CRJ-103-EH) and Street Law (CRJ-117-EH). All courses are held on Wednesdays from 6 to 8:45 p.m. beginning September 16. A number of seats in these courses are reserved for Everett High School students as part of the College’s Dual Enrollment and Early College programs; additional seats are open to prospective and current BHCC students as well as to the general public.
Everett High School Principal Erick Naumann lauded the benefits of dual enrollment for high school students. “Studies show that students in dual enrollment are more prepared, persistent and practical. They achieve higher grade point averages in college, and fewer development courses are needed,” said Naumann.
“BHCC draws many students from this community,” said Nuri Chandler-Smith, Dean of Academic Support and College Pathways Programs. “Locating courses in the communities where our current and potential students live, work or seek services makes the transition to college easier and encourages students to regard a college education as more attainable as they look to the future.”
The College is also offering courses beginning this fall at the Asian American Civic Association in Boston’s Chinatown.
