140 Courses Starting at Stanford Continuing Studies Next Week: Explore the Catalogue of Campus and Online Courses

Quick fyi: I spend my days at Stan­ford Con­tin­u­ing Stud­ies, where we’ve devel­oped a rich line­up of online cours­es for life­long learn­ers, many of which will get start­ed next week. The cours­es aren’t free. But they’re first rate, giv­ing adult students–no mat­ter where they live–the chance to work with ded­i­cat­ed teach­ers and stu­dents.

The cat­a­logue includes a large num­ber of online Cre­ative Writ­ing cours­es, cov­er­ing the Nov­el, the Mem­oir, Cre­ative Non­fic­tion, Trav­el Writ­ing, Poet­ry and more. For the pro­fes­sion­al, the pro­gram offers online busi­ness cours­es in sub­jects like Entre­pre­neur­ship: From Ideas to Fund­ingAn Intro­duc­tion to Project Man­age­ment: The Basics for Suc­cess and Find­ing Product/Market Fit: Using Design Research for New Prod­uct Suc­cess.

And there’s a grow­ing num­ber of online Lib­er­al Arts cours­es too. Take for exam­ple Con­sti­tu­tion­al Law, An Intro­duc­tion to Jane Austen and Diet and Gene Expres­sion: You Are What You Eat.

If you live in the San Fran­cis­co Bay Area, check out the larg­er cat­a­logue. Stan­ford Con­tin­u­ing Stud­ies has 140 cours­es get­ting start­ed this Spring quar­ter (next week), most tak­ing place in Stan­ford’s class­rooms. The two flag­ship cours­es of the quar­ter include: The Genius of Leonar­do da Vin­ci: A 500th Anniver­sary Cel­e­bra­tion and 20th-Cen­tu­ry Amer­i­can Lit­er­a­ture: An Intel­lec­tu­al Bus Tour with Michael Kras­ny, the host of KQED’s Forum.
