Serving seven counties, Alabama's Bevill State Community College offers campuses in Fayette, Hamilton, Jasper and Sumiton, as well as an instructional site at the Pickens County Educational Center.
The college was formed in 1992, when Walker State Technical College and Brewer State Junior College came together. In 1993, BSCC acquired the Hamilton Campus of Northwest Alabama Community College, and the school absorbed UAB/Walker College in 1998.
Today, the public, two-year institution enrolls more than 3,500 students from both Alabama and Mississippi and offers a variety of pre-baccalaureate programs with classes available both on campus and online. Programs of study include chemistry, mathematics, history, psychology and more, and students can earn certificates in areas such as automotive technology, cosmetology and graphic communications. BSCC also provides a program called STARS designed to assist students who plan to pursue a four-year degree after earning an associate in Arts or associate in Science degree.
In addition, BSCC features a Continuing Education Division for adults who want to learn new skills, with courses offered in areas such as keyboarding, Microsoft Excel, Photoshop and digital photography. An evening/weekend program is also available, ideal for students who work during daytime hours, offering classes on Friday evenings, Saturdays and Sundays.
