Summer Educational Outreach @ UNLVScience & Math, UNLV | Sandra | April 15, 2007 at 19:20
I wrote an article on the summer school classes being offered at UNLV, classes which can be taken for credit, but which are open to enrollment for anyone who choses – not just those officially enrolled as students at the university.
In addition to those classes, which are rich and varied, the UNLV Educational Outreach Program offers a host of possibilities for further education in very practical areas such paralegal certification, medical transcription, banking certification, troubleshooting and maintaining your PC, Adobe Photoshop and much more. There are exciting field trips like the Grand Canyon Railway, fossil hunting weekend, the Utah Shakespeare Festival and a geology-based cruise on Lake Mead on the Forever Earth Boat. There are a host of Food and Wine classes including Tea Etiquette, Sushi, Tequila Tasting and Beers & Brews. Throw in screenwriting courses and How to Plot Novels, Plays or Scripts with Beginning Italian and Canine “Good Citizen” Training and you have a summer of experiences at a very reasonable cost. I have taken a couple of classes and feel I got very good value. The catalogue has been mailed out to most households, but check out the website for more info.
