LEXINGTON, Ky. (August 15, 2012) - Classes began at Bluegrass Community & Technical College (BCTC) today, and it is the beginning of another promising year. A unique mix of students ranging from the traditional 18-year-old high school graduates to workers looking for career changes attend BCTC.
“It’s exciting that we can assist such a diverse group of people from our community,” Vice President, Student Development and Enrollment Management, Palisa Williams Rushin, said.
BCTC is launching an Associate of Fine Arts in Theatre and the Honors Program is kicking off its second year. The honors program provides a unique and exciting educational opportunity for highly motivated students. Students participating in the program take a special honors course and several General Education courses, which fosters a strong sense of mutual intellectual exploration and learning.
“Our new Honors Program is designed to encourage curiosity and independent thinking in our students,” Director of the Honors Program, Daniel Schuman, said.
BCTC is one of the fastest-growing two-year community and technical colleges in the state. It offers daytime, evening and weekend classes at six convenient campus locations. Classes are also offered in Lancaster, Georgetown-Scott County, downtown Lexington and online. Several academic and technical programs, including two-year associate degrees, certificates and diplomas in dozens of sought-after careers, fit the needs of students who chose BCTC as their academic pathway to the future.
