STLCC offers new path for adults to earn an associate degree
Tuesday, April 21, 2020
As life changes for adults – families, jobs, responsibilities, education – plans change, too.
For adults who are seeking a change in their education, such as earning an associate degree, St. Louis Community College will offer a new way for adult students to earn a degree, Evening Path.
Beginning August 2020, students can take the next step in their educational path by completing a degree in two years - including summer - two nights a week.
How Evening Path Works
Students will attend class twice a week, Monday and Thursday from 6-9:15 p.m., taking one class Monday and one class Thursday. Classes will take place at STLCC-Meramec and South County.
The classes are eight-weeks with two sessions per semester. During the fall and spring semesters, students will complete four classes; in the summer, students will complete two classes.
Evening Path classes are hybrid, meaning students will meet in the classroom setting each week, as well as complete activities and assignments online to fulfill the required learning time each week.
“The program was envisioned and designed to meet students where they are,” said Dr. Ame Mead, division dean, arts and communications, STLCC-Meramec.
“The Evening Path is a clear, coherent educational experience that helps students take the first step – and each successive step – to their goal of an associate degree in a way that makes sense while recognizing their other life obligations.
“Because of this goal, the current global crisis becomes another place where we meet our students where they are. If circumstance dictates that we are able to meet in the classroom, we will. If circumstance dictates, we will meet for live virtual lectures - an online version of an interactive and engaged learning experience.
“The purpose remains the same – to serve students effectively and efficiently toward the desired end goal of an associate degree,” said Mead.
