College offers summer study

June 13, 1996|By Joni Guhne | Joni Guhne,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

THERE'S MORE to ponder this summer than the small print on the sun screen and insect repellent. At Anne Arundel Community College, you can earn college credits in six weeks or less.

The six-week term, from July 10 to Aug. 15, offers more than 70 courses ranging from math for allied health professionals to a British theater travel-study trip. Introductory and required courses for many degree and certificate programs will also be offered.

Term 3 telecourses may also be viewed on cable, at the Arnold campus or by checking out the tape.

Three accelerated three-credit courses will also be available this summer: Introduction to Special Education, Introduction to Computers and "Ten Great Military Leaders of the Civil War."

Information about Term 3 courses: 541-2241; information about telecourses and accelerated courses: 541-2464.

Three students chosen

If you weren't already impressed by the quality of our community college, read on.

Anne Arundel is the only two-year school in the nation chosen to send students to the American Sociological Association honors program in New York City in August.

Rubbing elbows with young people from four-year colleges and universities from across the nation will be Sarah Martin of Annapolis, Sandra Brown of Pasadena and Jennifer Hall of Severna Park.

And Anne Arundel is not just for college-level students. Students from 15 to 18 years of age are eligible to take the two-week, noncredit classes in driver education.

The courses, beginning every two weeks from Wednesday through Aug. 19, include the mandated 30 hours of classroom instruction plus six hours of behind-the-wheel instruction.

The cost is $269. Information: 541-2348.
