The program is designed for persons of all ages and backgrounds with special attention given to individual student needs and abilities. To meet students' needs, courses are offered online and in the classroom. Enrollment in most classes is open to all interested students whether they attend school full- or part-time. Many courses are also excellent for parents and others who work with young children and for teachers needing to keep their teaching credentials current.
