Online courses at West Hills College Coalinga do not have a campus attendance requirement; instead, students and faculty communicate using West Hills College email, discussion boards, group chats and the online classroom. These classes are fully asynchronous and serve students worldwide. A pioneer in online education, West Hills College Coalinga began offering online instruction in 1998. There are currently four Associate of Arts degrees available online in the areas of Administration of Justice Law Enforcement, Liberal Studies, Psychology, and Social Sience. The district physical education requirement can be waived for students over 21.
Online courses are available in the following subject areas: Administration of Justice, Biology, Business, Computer Information Systems, Economics, English, Geography, Health Education, History, Mathematics, Music, Physical Science, Political Science, Psychology and Sociology. We expect to add more subjects to our offerings in the future.
Videoconference courses allow the full breadth of academic curricula to be available to each campus. The technology of multi-conferencing brings together students and instructors throughout the district to optimize the interaction and learning experience of students at each site.
