History of the College
Walters State opened in Morristown in September 1970 to 414 students. Students took basic academic courses and could choose among five career programs (law enforcement, secretarial science, manufacturing, library services and architectural technology). Today, the college’s 6,000-plus students can attend classes at one of four campus sites and choose majors from 150 university transfer or technical career-preparation programs.
Students in Tennessee History during the Spring 2020 semester completed a project that involved researching the history of the state, along with research into Walters State Community College.Student History Project
