Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 13, 2007
An adult learning school with convenient Washington, DC and Northern Virginia (NOVA) locations, Potomac College ( http://www.potomac.edu ) offers class schedules tailored for adult learners.
The classes are structured in year-long, six-week modules, so that adult learners can change their schedules with ease. Generally, two- and four-year business college or computer college programs require that students attend class for 14- to 17-week long semester sessions at Potomac, adult students save time, and can focus on their careers, as well. Night classes that begin at 6:30 pm and weekend classes that meet on Saturdays allow adult workers with full- or part-time day jobs to complete two- or four-year degrees while earning an income. Many adult learners now telecommute or travel extensively for their jobs. The flexible night and weekend class schedules, coupled with multiple ways to structure how groups of classes are taken, are a good fit for the fast-paced and competitive 21st-century business environment.
Unlike traditional business and computer schools with university settings, Potomac College's night and weekend classes target the essentials an adult learner needs for career advancement and continued professional success. Business and computer classes in accounting, management, information management, and the emerging field of cyber security meet the current market demands and career needs of adult learners. The convenience of night and weekend classes makes degree completion easier for busy professionals. Potomac College recognizes the difficulties of juggling school and a full time career, and is making flexible, bi-weekly night and weekend class scheduling doable and possible.
Potomac College boasts Washington, DC and Virginia area students who are in similar places in life: They have already begun their careers and are seeking professional advancement, or they have always wanted to complete a college degree, but never got the opportunity to start or complete school. Some are even federal and state government professionals and employees working in the DC/Virginia area. Potomac's night and weekend classes allow students to commute easily from work to campus, without missing critical deadlines and projects during their workdays. Potomac College students are able to reach professional goals, both in the classroom and in the boardroom.
The school offers many popular degree programs with curricula similar to other Washington, DC and Virginia business and computer schools. At Potomac, two-year adult learning degrees are offered in accounting, information systems, international business, management, and security management. The four-year degree programs include accounting, government contract management, information systems, international business, and general management. These programs accept credits from other universities and community colleges, and offer classes specifically targeted to the adult learner's career field of choice, cutting down on classroom time spent in unnecessary general education requirements.
Potomac College offers adult learners academic and career counseling and support throughout their academic journey, as well. It can be daunting to begin or return to school. Potomac recognizes this, and offers academic advisers on hand to guide students in choosing the best business and/or computer courses for their career and degree goals. The school also offers comprehensive career counseling, so that adult learners can devise a plan to integrate their classroom learning and practical experiences.
Adult learners are able to take the business, computer, accounting, and management concepts they learn in night and Saturday classes and apply them on the job. During each course, students learn practical textbook concepts, business strategies, and current computer skills and applications. They then bring school concepts to work, analyzing and recommending how workplace situations might be improved by certain business techniques. In this way, the career advancement of adult learners at Potomac is integrated with and enhanced by classroom theory.
