By Rosanna Boscawen
A
re you a recent graduatemourning the end of your lifein education
and desperatelytrying to hold on to it? Perhapsyou have a sudden burningdesire to learn something completely newand out-o-the-box, or – wisely – are look-ing to boost your employment credentials?Continuing Education programs are atmost o the city’s universities, both bigand small, and they oer the opportunityto sit back, relax, and return to your morecurious, younger sel. We’ve done thelegwork or you and ound out how veo the best schools dene their programsand what exactly you can learn.
Columbia university
Location: 203 Lewisohn HallTel: 212-854-2124Email: ce-ino@columbia.eduThe money bit: $700 - $2,200Columbia’s Auditing and LielongLearning program is, unsurprisingly,more restricted and more expensivethan others in the city. Each semester(Fall and Spring only), there’s a choice o about 30 classes, each o which will costyou $2,200, give or take a little. (LielongLearning Programs or the over 65s are$700 per class). As an auditor, you’renot allowed to participate in the class,except at the instructor’s discretion.However, on the plus side, you don’t haveto do the homework, and that instructorwill likely be one o the bigger namesin his or her eld. On oer this all areAstronomy and Russian, inter alia.Already have a graduate degreeand eeling up or something a littlemore hands-on and hardcore? You canalso take a Post-Baccalaureate course,chosen rom 50 dierent options.Classes begin September 6, lateregistration and changes can bemade beore September 16.
Cuny
Location: Citywide212-997-2869The money bit: Could be $200 or a shortcourse in Green Manuacturing, could bein the thousands i you do a long program.I I could I would take: a course in WindPower at NYC College o Technologyin Brooklyn (Suri Duitch, UniversityAssociate Dean or Continuing Education).There’s no shortage o CUNY campusesin the city (seventeen across the veboroughs), and their CE courses arelikewise plenteous. Most courses arenon-credit and in general anyone canenroll. Certain courses, particularly theproessionally oriented ones, requirediplomas or high school qualications.You won’t get much access to acilities,such as a library, although i you enrollin a larger program, such as in cultureor business, you’ll likely get betteradvice rom eld proessionals.Classes begin mid-September.
Fashion instituteoF teChnology
Location: 7th Avenue at 27 StreetTel: 212 217.3334 Email:conted@tnyc.eduThe money bit: As everywhere, it varies,but i you’re a New York resident you’llbe starting at $166 per credit. Non-credit courses are charged or tuition,and lectures, labs and workshopsare billed at dierent rates. Anyone with a high school diplomacan take a CE class at FIT, although moreadvanced courses have prerequisites.Classes are not audits but classes intheir own right, and you can choose romtraditional and new courses alike. I you’re a populist, go or the credit-bearingFashion Design, Fashion MerchandisingManagement or Fine Arts courses. Unlikethe more academic-centric schools, hereyou may use the library and have access toadvisors, as well as having limited accessto the Career and Internship Center.Credit classes start August 29.Non-credit start September 6.
