Areas of Interest

We've reorganized our programs and courses

To better reflect our community’s dynamic and evolving needs, we've reorganized our courses and certificates into new Areas of Interest. You’ll see new additions as well as familiar ones. Under these, we’ve listed the categories that we consider communities of learning. You’ll notice an updated name or a new location for these categories.

Be assured that we have not discontinued any classes or certificates with this change. On the contrary—we’re continuing to develop new classes and innovative programs for you. So keep checking back every quarter to see what’s new!
