Trent University will offer its widest variety of courses ever through its Continuing Education program this fall, opening registration this month to more than 80 evening classes.
From beekeeping and Chinese music to soap-making and Arabic, the course selection promises to have something for just about everyone.
And the university will continue to cater to students with its “pick and learn” format where community members have the chance to “choose their own adventure” by registering for single classes or full six or eight-week courses.
The classes will be offered under one of three headings: History & Culture; Science & Environment; and Writing. Almost all of them are taught by graduate students enrolled at the university. Classes are held evenings Monday through Friday, at Trent University’s Traill College on London Street. Classes are two hours in length, start at 7:00 p.m. and are only $20 per class.
New this fall, the program will also be adding two special one-day workshops to the line-up focused on soap making, and vermicomposting.
“This fall, we are pleased to be offering Continuing Education courses that embrace the ideals of lifelong learning that Trent was founded on,” said Continuing Education director Michael Eamon. “We are offering a wide selection of popular courses from speculative fiction to computers that are geared to students of all ages and interests.”
All classes can be found, selected and paid for online.
All students who enroll before October 17 are entered in a draw for a Trent University gift bag. Classes start October 24.
