Tulsa native Elizabeth Theban isn’t a full-time Tulsa Community College student, but that doesn’t keep her from taking advantage of a local option for summer courses.
Elizabeth is an Art History student at the University of Oklahoma in Norman, and her summer classes at TCC keep her on track to graduate in 2018.
“Art History students have to take practical art courses like drawing and painting,” she said. “But those classes are extremely time-consuming during the course of a regular semester.”
Elizabeth plans to pursue graduate education in museum studies and work in collections management for a museum or similar facility. Supplementing her OU education with classes at TCC helps her do that on her own timeline.
“It’s very convenient that I can come home for the summer and get art and general education courses out of the way,” she said. “TCC gives me those options.”
