HANCEVILLE, ALA. –  Wallace State Machine Tool Technology instructor Gary McMinn relied significantly on night classes when he was pursuing his degree.  Night classes are great options for students seeking a flexible schedule.

“I came to school at night the entire time. I worked full-time (at Nicholson File) during the week and came to school three nights a week. It took a little longer to finish than for some, but I got to be home with my wife and family two nights out of the week,” McMinn said. “I wouldn’t be where I’m at if not for the night classes available at Wallace State.”

Wallace State’s Machine Tool Technology/Computer Numerical Control (CNC) program has consistently served students at night and is offering four evening classes for students this fall.

“I’ve seen young men and women across campus, who were stuck in dead-in jobs and unhappy, decide to take night classes and create a better future for themselves,” McMinn said. “There are people out there who want to better themselves. They aren’t just sure how they can do it, especially if they are handling a lot of responsibilities. They can do it at Wallace State.”

Other degree and certificate programs offering night classes include Automotive Service Technology, Aviation/Flight Technology, Engineering Technology, HVAC & Refrigeration, Welding, Criminal Justice, Computer Science, Paralegal and Business Education & Administration. Students can also complete General Studies courses for Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degrees during the evening hours.

Core academic courses available at night during the fall semester are Principles of Biology I, Human Anatomy & Physiology I, General Microbiology, College Chemistry I, Microcomputer Applications, Principles of Microeconomics, Basic English I & II, English Composition I & II, Western Civilization I, United States History I & II, Basic Mathematics, Elementary Algebra, Intermediate College Algebra, Precalculus Algebra, Precalculus Trigonometry, Freshman Seminar, General Physics/Calculus I, General Psychology, Introductory Spanish I and Fundamentals of Oral Communication.
