Give the gift of learning with UNLV Continuing Education
UNLV Continuing Education has joined with Catalyst to offer SAT and ACT boot camps. The momentum-boosting weekend seminars will arm students with go-to strategies for every question they will face on the day of the test. Students will learn to spot hidden clues that instantly reveal the main idea in long reading passages. They will also find out how to avoid the four sneakiest ways SAT and ACT grammar questions try to trick students. In addition, students will be able to compose a perfect-score essay, no matter what question the SAT asks.
The Non-Profit Management Certificate program through UNLV Continuing Education is revising its curriculum and moving its classes to a new location at Las Vegas’ Historic Fifth Street School starting in January.
The Office of Continuing Education will be closed Nov. 22-24 in observance of Thanksgiving. The information desk will reopen Monday Nov. 26 for normal business hours.
UNLV Continuing Education has initiated a new advertising campaign to encourage its past loyal and future new students to “Never Stop Learning.” Created by B&P Advertising, the campaign and its new look began with a soft roll out in August with the Fall 2012 Continuing Education Catalog. In the months ahead, you will see and hear the “Never Stop Learning” message in print, online and on the air in such media as BLVD magazine, KNPR, Facebook, and digital outdoor billboards.
The Division of Educational Outreach is pleased to announce the opening of two new computer teaching labs at our UNLV Paradise Campus. While a handful of courses tested the PC lab in August, the sleek, silvery Macs will welcome their first users in mid-September. The new computer will stay busy with the expanding schedule of technology classes UNLV Continuing Education has put together.
