Camosun will offer six university transfer courses this fall
July 21, 2011
West Shore residents who want to attend college without driving into town will have more choices than ever this fall. Starting September 6, 2011, Camosun will run six university transfer courses in partnership with the WestShore Centre for Learning and Training.
“Camosun is very happy that we’re able to bring more courses than ever to the West Shore,” says Fred Hughes, Acting Dean for Camosun’s School of Arts and Science. “We started by offering a single course in 2009, and last January we were able to attract enough students to fill five courses. This growth is very encouraging, and clearly tells us that West Shore residents want their community college in their community.”
Classes will be offered in the evenings for the convenience of adult learners who work during the day. The six courses offered this fall cover a range of interests and each course provides transfer credit to BC universities including UVic, VIU, UBC and SFU. Two of the courses were offered in January and the other four are new to the West Shore.
Because of its versatility, English 150 - English Composition will be offered again. English 150 is equivalent to first–year university English and is a required course within many of Camosun’s diploma programs, such as Business Administration, Criminal Justice, Environmental Technology, Nursing and Sport Management, just to name a few. As a prerequisite for many post–secondary courses, it opens academic doors in all areas of humanities, social sciences and degree programs.
CRIM 154 – The Criminal Justice System is the other course that is returning after a successful run last January. Besides gaining post–secondary credit, learners find the subject useful for understanding many of Canada’s complex issues, helping them to be better informed citizens.
The four new courses include:
- ANTH 104 – Introduction to Anthropology,
- COMP 156 – Computer Concepts
- PHIL 100 – Introduction to Philosophy
- PYC 130 – Contemporary Issues

Camosun offers more than 300 university transfer courses in 30 different subjects as well as several two–year associate degrees in arts and science. Each year, more than 3,000 adult learners choose Camosun College for academic studies because of small classes, lower tuition and excellent preparation for future studies.
