The Graduate School at Hood College offers courses for individuals interested in non-degree studies for professional development, continuing education or personal enrichment.
Professional development courses also provide the opportunity to sample a graduate degree program before deciding to enroll. Non-degree students who are accepted into a graduate program may apply up to 12 credits taken as a non-degree student toward the master's requirements.
Convenient evening courses enable professionals to pursue this coursework after work. A number of programs offer courses in the summer. Others -- notably Ceramic Arts, Gerontology and Thanatology -- offer weekend courses throughout the year.
For spring 2015 courses, search the schedule of classes. Additional courses are available for non-degree-seeking students in spring. Other courses may be available to non-degree seeking students with permission from the instructor and/or program director. Learn more about classes in the catalog.
To register, apply to the Graduate School and indicate “non-degree” under Program Information.
