Sierra College announced today that Sacramento State will begin offering classes on the Sierra College campus in Rocklin this fall.

The university will offer five upper-division courses at Sierra’s Rocklin campus as part of a growing partnership between Sierra College and Sacramento State.

The two institutions are already working together on a three-year bachelor’s degree in nursing as well as a Sierra College presence at a planned Sac State satellite campus in the Placer Ranch development.

“We are excited to work closely with Sacramento State as we enhance the higher education opportunities in Placer County,” said Willy Duncan, President of Sierra College. “These courses will allow our students and other members of the community to get a first-hand experience of upper division courses.”

The five classes include three in the business school –Business Communication, Data Analysis for Managers andManagement of Contemporary Organizations– and two general education courses, Popular Culture and Multicultural America.

The courses will begin during the week of Aug. 31 and conclude during the week of Dec. 7, with finals the following week. The classes are each worth three transferrable upper division credits and will be offered during the evening and Saturday morning. Enrollment for the classes is expected to open in July.

“These five courses represent yet another step in Sacramento State’s effort to better serve Placer County,” said Alexander Gonzalez, President of Sacramento State. “We appreciate Sierra College’s partnership as we move forward in this endeavor.”

The courses are open to anyone who isn’t currently a Sacramento State student. They are:

  • Business Communication (Wednesday): The course will teach basic concepts for understanding the practice of communication in the changing world of business for both managers and professionals.
  • Data Analysis for Managers (Saturday): The business statistics course focuses on the application of statistical methods to business problems.
