In college, there are the classes you have to take. But sometimes, there are classes you want to take. Take a look at some classes we like to call "Hidden Gems." These are lesser known or unique classes that offer students a course off the beaten path. Many of these classes are electives, so you might be able to fit them into your program of study.
Every other week throughout the year, we will feature a new "gem" on the website homepage. Keep an eye out for these special classes! And if you have an idea or a class you'd like to see featured, let us know by emailing the CCAC Marketing Department.
This course is a survey of Pittsburgh’s role in the Colonial frontier, the westward movement, the development of the Ohio River Valley and the Industrial Revolution, as well as its role in developing solutions to contemporary urban problems.
If you feel empathy for young children and a desire to be a part of their healthy growth and development, this course may be right for you.
