SAN MARCOS – The fall semester arrives next month at Palomar College with a variety of new course offerings for students. Enrollment is open now and will continue through the start of classes Monday, Aug. 19.

Among the fresh offerings are child development teacher and EMT-basic courses, which prepare students for required certifications in one semester. There are also two dozen programs that can be completed in a year – many with online options.

For students interested in programs that lead directly to careers or professional certifications, the college will launch the following new certificates this fall: air conditioning, heating and refrigeration; deaf studies; intelligent transportation systems; drone technology; CAD/CAM design and manufacturing; web design and development; unmanned aircraft systems; pre-apprenticeship; social media and film, TV and electronic media.

"We are committed to the success of our students, and we're thrilled to be delivering so many new certificates and programs to our students this coming fall semester," Palomar College Superintendent and President Joi Lin Blake, Ph.D., said.
