Bristol Community College will offer four mornings of classes in Taunton starting this fall.
“Taunton has a critical need for access to higher education in the city,” BCC President John J. Sbrega said. “Taunton has always been an important part of our service area, and while we have provided direct services in the evening, it is clear from city officials and business leaders that there are residents who can benefit from college courses during the day. We are happy to serve those students.”
The community college plans to offer daytime general education courses in English, math, history and behavioral sciences at Cohannet in the fall. The credits from the courses will be able to be applied to any degree or certificate program, according to the college. Developmental courses will also be offered for students who need to improve their skills before doing college-level coursework.
The day schedule expands the four evenings of courses already offered at the Friedman Middle School, which is one of the fastest growing College sites.
