New Online Classes at PVCC

Posted: Updated:

Piedmont Virginia Community College (PVCC) recently expanded its number of online courses. This fall the school is offering 190 online credit and non-credit courses.  

The new online credit courses include some foreign languages including Beginning Arabic I and Beginning Russian I. There's also Introduction to the Travel Industry, Geography of Tourism I, and Introduction to Telecommunications.
Anita Showers is the media relations manager at PVCC, and says the school will probably offer more online classes in the future.

"They're popular,  they meet the needs of students who are busy. It's convenient for them and more and more we will probably increase our classes as well as sections of classes," Showers said.
Some popular online classes PVCC offers include English and  accounting courses.
Last year, PVCC had a record breaking 7,000 students enrolled at the school.  The fall semester begins August 27th.
