VIEW OUR SCHEDULE OF COURSES

Penn State Continuing Education is located in the Outreach Building in Innovation Park as part of the University Park campus. This convenient location has two adult learner classrooms, study areas with computer access, and advisers available for evening appointments. The proximity of the Outreach Building to The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel has allowed us the unique opportunity of offering courses off main campus with easy access to Route 220/I-99.

Class Experience

Our adult students comment that they really like the small class size, the convenience of class locations, and the bond they develop with other adult students. University Park evening classes on campus are a blend of adult nontraditional students and traditional-aged students, expanding opportunities for an enhanced environment through unique perspectives, experiences, and knowledge. Learning is a combination of hands-on activities, practical applied projects, and a personalized learning experience. Classes are scheduled conveniently in the evenings to help working adults fit education into their schedules.

Programs of Study

Penn State Continuing Education offers more than thirty degrees, certificates, and professional development programs. Degree programs range from associate to master's level and present many opportunities to "step up" from one program to the next.

Penn State Continuing Education delivers courses that apply to a wide selection of degrees conferred through Penn State's academic colleges. The bachelor's degree in organizational leadership can help adults who have earned some credits in the past complete their degree by packaging weekend, evening, and online courses.

Customized Training for Organizations

Customized, on-site training for local business and industry is available in the areas of management, leadership, supervision, communication, and customer service. The instructors bring years of industry experience and expertise to help your organization and employees increase their productivity. Programs are tailored to meet your specific needs.
