Personal Enrichment Continuing Education

Western Piedmont Community College’s philosophy of “lifelong learning,” sustaining personal growth, expanding horizons, and making new friends, is well represented in this varied array of continuing education courses focusing on applied arts, music, history, recreation, computer skills, healthy lifestyles and cultural studies. There are no tests and no academic requirements. Informal class sessions encourage comments, questions, and lively discussions.

Personal Enrichment classes will display a Sign Me Up or Register Now option.  The Sign Me Up option will let us know your interest in receiving more information about the class once dates, times or fees have been established.  Classes with the Register Now option have been scheduled with assigned dates, times and fees.
