Community Education FAQs
The Community Education Department runs non-credit courses, that are offered in the day, evening, on weekends, and online, to accommodate our student’s busy schedules. These include job training, recreational, and educational courses.
The courses do not grant credit toward an academic degree; however many fulfill continuing education requirements in the workplace. Students choose any class of interest. Usually, the time spent during a course is stress free - and is of personal satisfaction, whether related to personal or work-related goals.
The range of courses offered each semester changes and expands regularly. For example, courses are offered in the arts, workplace training, business, computers, finance, education, fitness, hobbies, crafts, personal development, language, travel, sports, recreation and dance.
Anyone - you, your family, friends or business colleagues. There are no age restrictions or general requirements for most courses.
Most courses are short-term or in a series. They start at various times throughout the semester to accommodate even the busiest schedule.
Prices are very affordable depending on the length and content of the course.
Courses are offered at one or all of our campuses in Brockton, Canton and Middleborough. Occasionally a course will require off-site classes at an appropriate venue such as a marina, furniture store, or function hall.
