Submitted on December 01, 2010 at 9:08 AM

It may seem like a long way off, but with the holidays approaching the spring semester at Volunteer State Community College will be coming up quickly. Spring classes start on January 13. Registration is open now for all students. New students must apply to the College first.

Among the new courses being offered this spring is Advanced Public Speaking. The class will build on a student's foundational skills (from Vol State courses COM 103 or COM 100) to further their development as a public speaker in a variety of settings. This is done through a combination of speaking, writing, and reading assignments.

Students interested in web and multimedia fields can take two new courses, if they have taken the prerequisite class, CIS 100 Computer Technology and Applications. CIS 110 - Fundamentals of Web Programming and Design will give students experience using some of today's most popular web design software such as Expressions and Dreamweaver and will provide students with the basic knowledge and skills they need for web page development. CIS 141 - Multimedia and Animation for the Web is a hands-on experience in creating effective multimedia (graphics, animation, audio, video) for the Internet using a variety of software packages including Adobe Photoshop, Flash, and Moviemaker.

The new Criminal Justice Fast-Track Technical Certificate will allow students to obtain a certificate in just one semester of intensive class work. The program also provides for greater student support and counseling. Classes are held in longer sessions, so it will be easier for the instructor to have class trips and visits from criminal justice professionals. It all comes with one cost: $1697.50 for in state students, with another $450 estimated for books. Interested students can call 615-512-2218 or Kevin.cook@volstate.edu.

MUS 181- Jazz Piano Class is for advanced piano students. The course will concentrate on jazz choral harmony and improvisation. Permission is required to make sure students have the skill level needed to be successful in the class.

The application and registration process can be completed online or in person. To view the spring schedule of classes visit www.volstate.edu Call 615-230-3688 for more information on how to get started.
