Southeast Community College
students will begin fall classes Monday, Aug. 22, at all three campuses in
Beatrice, Lincoln and Milford. In addition to more than 60 areas of study, a
few new ones have been added, including Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning
Technology; Concrete Construction Technician and four areas within Computer
Information Technology that were focus areas.
“We are excited about our new
A.A.S. (Associate of Applied Science) in Geographic Information Systems Technician
because it is the only such program in community colleges in Nebraska and one
of only a handful in the country that is delivered completely online,” said Dr.
Joel Michaelis, Vice President for Instruction.
Previously, students taking
the GIST program could only earn a Certificate.
A.A.S. degrees can now be
earned in Applications Development, Computer Support, Cybersecurity, and
Network Manager, all related to the existing CIT program.
Certificates are now offered
in Global Studies, Bookkeeping and Peer Support (under Human Services), and Baking/Pastry,
which had been a focus area under the Culinary/Hospitality program, now offers
an A.A.S. and Certificate.
“I’m excited about all of the
new programs SCC will be offering because they were developed directly as a
result of feedback we received from our industry partners,” added Michaelis.
“The College makes an effort to connect with local business and industry to
make sure we are meeting their needs.”
In addition, each campus will
host its own “Weeks of Welcome” events in which new and returning students participate.
The Beatrice Campus has three weeks of activities planned for the start of the
“The Beatrice Campus is
preparing for another exciting semester,” said Brett Bright, campus director. “We
have completed several new spaces that include a new criminal justice lab, Esports
room, art room, and pottery room. Our volleyball team and soccer teams have
been practicing and start competition this Friday (Aug. 19).”
