Hidden Gems

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.
