Directed Study Courses
Directed study courses allow individuals and small groups of students to enhance their individual instructional programs by studying independently under the direction of faculty members in specific or related disciplines. The students and faculty members, in consultation with the Division Dean, work together to develop individualized learning contracts which specify the learning objectives and activities to be completed as well as the number of units to be earned. A Directed Studies contract between the student and faculty member will be developed to identify how students will demonstrate mastery of learning objectives to receive course credit.
For more information, contact the appropriate Division Office.
Work Experience Education Courses
Students who are employed for pay or as volunteers may receive college credit for hours worked during the semester. Students enroll in Work Experience in their discipline if they perform job duties related to their area of study. Career/ Technical Work Experience is repeatable to a maximum of 8 units. General Work Experience and Career/Technical Work Experience may be combined for a maximum of 16 units across all disciplines. Students enroll in General Work Experience if they do not have a declared occupational major at SJCC or if their job is not related to their major.
