Friday, January 14, 2011

Starting in the spring 2011 semester, the Wichita State University Office of Continuing Education will offer new courses to the general public.

WSU has a range of noncredit, continuing education courses that allow people to learn a variety of topics in a nontraditional classroom setting.

The classes are offered with no academic credit and include no tests or homework. Most are weekly two-hour sessions and last six to 12 weeks. Some short-term classes are also offered.

University professors and community experts teach the classes, which are being held at WSU's Eugene M. Hughes Metropolitan Complex and the main, South and West WSU campuses. Online classes are also offered.

Classes range from Archaeology and the Bible, Beginning Bridge and Mandarin Chinese to Investing for Women, Computer Basics and Home Principles of Landscape Design. Students can also learn anything from how to hit a golf ball to advanced wine tasting and enjoyment.

Costs range from free to $177 per person. Enrollment is open.
