Cerro Coso College: Economics 101 in Mojave this Fall

Cerro Coso FlyerApril 24: This Fall, Cerro Coso Community College will be offering Economics 101 at Mojave High School. This is first time any college has offered Economics in Mojave, and the class will be taught by the Mojave Foundation’s very own Todd Quelet. Todd has been teaching American Government at nights for Cerro Coso in Tehachapi & Edwards AFB, but wanted to bring college-level social sciences here to Mojave. Economics 101 is designed to be a general introduction to basic economic principals – without any of the math or prerequisites. The class is geared toward high school juniors and seniors, college freshmen, and adults who want to get a basic overview of macro, micro and international economics. “I take a lot of pride in making my classes fun and engaging, and providing the students with a foundation they can with them through life.” said Todd Quelet, “I had a professor in college who inspired in me a lifetime of learning in Economics, and I hope to bring the same passion and real-world perspective to students in my own community.”

Economics 101 will be offered Tuesdays and Thursdays at Mojave High School from 5:30 to 6:55 pm. The semester begins August 24th and ends December 12th. Concurrent Enrollment at Cerro Coso is free for most high school students, regardless of high school; and even the books are free for students of Mojave Unified from Mojave or Cal City. Classes are only $140 for non-high school students. Call Kristin Hanle at 661-258-8644 for questions (M-Th 7:30-5:30; F 8-12), or visit the Cerro Coso website at
