PSC to Offer Summer Computer Software Applications Class Monday & Tuesday Evenings

 

(Peru, Neb.) Peru State College’s (PSC) School of Professional Studies will offer a computer software applications class (CMIS 101) on Monday and Tuesday evenings June 7 through July 30. It will be held on the PSC campus from 6:30 – 9:15 p.m. Registration is underway.

The three credit-hour course is an introduction to basic computer concepts, including Windows- based spreadsheets, databases and presentation graphics software currently used in the industry.  Development of problem-solving and proficiency using selected commercial software packages are stressed. While traditional Microsoft Office applications will be taught, new and exciting technology will also be introduced, including Google Documents and virtual desktops. Students will also learn how to save money on software, including free and open source replacements for everyday usage.

Dean of Professional Studies Dr. Jeff Ehrlich said, “We are offering this course in the evenings as a way to give working people from our surrounding communities an opportunity to increase their computer knowledge and skills. Peru State College prides itself on providing our students with a top quality education that is flexible enough to fit their busy lifestyles – all for one of the most affordable prices in the region. I encourage anyone who needs to enhance their computer skills to register as soon as possible as space is limited.” 

For additional information and to register for the course, contact the PSC Admissions Office at 800-742-4412 or admissions@peru.edu. Cost is $122.50 per credit hour, regardless of residency.
