West Hills College is committed to meeting the student needs of
the five counties that it serves. An emphasis has been placed on
distance learning courses in order to make a college education available
to students that live in the remote areas of the district or are
otherwise unable to attend traditional classes. Wes Hills College
offers online courses that can be completed from any location with
an internet connection. We also offer videoconference courses that
allow students on multiple campuses to participate in class together.
Online courses at West Hills College 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 began
offering online instruction in 1998. There are currently three
Associate of Arts degrees available online in the areas of Administration
of Justice, Library Studies and Psychology. The district physical
education requirement can be waived for students over 21.
Online courses are available in the following subject areas:
Administration of Justice, Business, Computer Information Systems,
Economics, English, Geography, Health Education, History, Mathematics,
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.
