Registration for spring Continuing Studies courses starts March 5
Registration for more than 80 spring courses, seminars and workshops offered through Stanford's Continuing Studies Program begins at 8:30 a.m. Monday, March 5.
Courses in areas ranging from business and information technology to creative writing and foreign languages are open to students of all ages for letter grades, credit/no credit or auditing.
In addition to multiple-session classes, the program also offers several one-day courses and events. These include "Deep Mapping," a free symposium set for May 21, at which geologists, artists and scholars from around the Bay Area will explore the stories maps tell and discuss innovative ways of representing and imagining the earth; "The Gilded Age: Beyond Appearances," a one-day seminar on March 31 focusing on works from the Smithsonian American Art Museum to be on view beginning March 29 at the Cantor Arts Center; and a one-day program on the cultural, social and religious dimensions of walking, titled "Walking Meditation."
Discounts or financial assistance are available to Stanford faculty members and students (and their spouses or domestic partners), as well as to employees who work at the university at least half time; people ages 65 years or older; and K-12 teachers.
