Continuing Education

Serving the community by offering a wide range of courses at reasonable cost, Continuing Education classes are primarily non-credit and non-graded. Most of the classes are taught by community members who are experts in their fields. Classes may range from one evening to a full quarter in length. Costs vary by class.

Classes include personal enrichment or professional development in areas as diverse as arts and crafts, dance and exercise, food and wine, foreign languages, computer applications, web design, programming, gardening, job hunting, financial planning, and many more. Many Continuing Education classes are available online as well.
