Sinclair classes start today, school offering new degrees, certificates

Sinclair Community College students are back in classes today and the school is now offering students the chance to get a number of new degrees and certificates.

Sinclair will become the first two-year school in Ohio to offer an associate’s degree in public health, which is designed to help students enter the workforce upon completion or transfer to a university to achieve bachelor’s degree in the field, according to the school.

Sinclair opened a new health sciences center on its downtown Dayton campus last fall and most of the new degree and certificate programs the school is offering are focused on health fields.

The degree is one of several new programs the community college is offering this fall. Students started classes again today at Sinclair.

Among other new offerings is an associate’s degree in health care simulation technology and “short-term” certificates for home health aides, patient care technicians and assistants for chemical dependency counselors, according to the school.

“We have worked with businesses and community leaders and delivered many new programs of study and career pathways for students to be successful,” Sinclair president Steve Johnson said in a prepared statement.

Enrollment at Sinclair is expected to remain flat this fall, meaning the number of students taking classes through the community college will remain just under 18,600.
