What is your favorite class you have ever taken at KPC, and why?

Writing in the Professions, because it’s very interactive and you learn a lot of helpful things for the future, like for finding jobs and stuff.

My favorite class was the welding class, as I really enjoy welding and I learned a lot.

My favorite class was Introduction to Psychology. I took this class as a JumpStart student and loved learning about the malleability of memory as well as learning about mental health disorders. Professor Partridge always made class interesting.

– Sage Santos, KBC

Bachelor of Arts, Early Childhood Education

Writing 100, because it’s an enjoyable class and I have a really awesome teacher.

Math. The teachers and tutors are fantastic, and there is almost unlimited support when I get stuck.

– Clayton Cardwell, KBC

Associate of Arts

My favorite class at KPC-KBC so far has been Biology 108. It is an innovative class in so many ways; intense and exciting, it afforded collaboration between three UAA campuses, dozens of students, and multiple professors. The class is taught in units around concepts like Genetics and Metabolism, with a different specialist for each unit topic, so we learned from scientific leaders in many specialties. Lectures originated in Anchorage and were reviewed by Cindy Tressel in Kodiak, who then engaged the Homer students and Prof. Debbie Tobin in critical thinking and practice.

– Jill Burnham, KBC

Bachelor of Science, Natural Science

Photo of Amanda Erickson

Psychology 150, Lifespan Development. I have a three-year-old, and I’m getting to learn a lot of parenting tips, and Dr. Landen is a really fun teacher. Also, the things you get to learn about yourself is fun and interesting.

– Amanda Erickson, KRC

Certified Nursing Assistant

Paramedic class, because I’m learning how to be a paramedic and that’s what I want to be.
