Hudson Valley Community College will offer a college-level, credit-bearing evening course at Clayton A. Bouton High School during the spring semester.
"Introduction to Family Violence" will meet once a week, on Mondays from 6 to 9:30 p.m.
The course is part of Hudson Valley Community College's Criminal Justice curriculum. It provides students with a varied perspective on family violence, including historical, cultural and legal views of partner abuse, child abuse and elder abuse. Students will also gain a better knowledge of the dynamics of family violence and a better understanding of the responses available through criminal justice, health care and social service agencies.
Classes begin the week of January 22 and will run through the second week of May.
"Hudson Valley Community College is focusing on its mission to bring the college to the community," said President John Buono. "Our off-campus offerings are continuing to grow at schools, businesses and government agencies around the Capital Region."
