Personal Enrichment

MWCC offers noncredit courses that enhance your skills, hobbies, work, and personal life. Choose from classes offered days, evenings, or online. No grades or exams (except for licensure courses)! A noncredit course does not offer credit toward an academic degree. Most take these courses to enhance their skills or for recreational purposes. You can learn to use your digital camera, learn how a computer program would help you get ahead at work, you can even learn how to play a musical instrument. We also offer courses to help you grow your business, enhance employees’ skills and maintain customers.

Note Regarding COVID-19: The Life Long Learning department is dedicated to bringing Educational, Fun and Inspirational courses to our community. Due to COVID-19 most courses are virtual for the Summer session. For the Fall session when you sign up for a class, we will let you know if that class has to shift to a virtual format or will stay in a face to face format. You can get a refund if you decide you can not take the class online if it does shift. Thank you for your understanding.
