Pursue a Passion or Refine a Professional Skill

March 21, 2014 — Through an exciting new program open to the public, you don’t have to be a Drexel student to engage with faculty at the top of their creative fields. Take an art or design course, or develop a technical skill, through Westphal College’s non-credit Enrichment and Professional course offerings, which cater to diverse learners of all backgrounds. Registration is open for spring courses, which begin in April and last four weeks, varying by course.

Enrichment courses are designed to benefit both beginner students and those with more experience, while professional courses give designers the skills they need to keep pace with the industry’s rapidly evolving technological landscape. All classes foster an opportunity to be a student again in a friendly and creative community. Drexel alumni and professional groups can receive a special course discount code by emailing Brittanie Sterner at Click here to learn more and register for Enrichment and Professional courses.

Technical courses offered this spring include Web Design for Designers, as well as two courses approved as AIA continuing education units –Revit Fundamentals and Introduction to Architectural Representations.

The three enrichment courses include the studio course, Beginning Painting: Methods & Ways of Seeing, which focuses on observational techniques and personal expression; Rock Music Through the Mid 60s, a listening-based jaunt through the evolution of a American pop music culture; and The Marx Brothers and the Birth of Sound Era Comedy, which addresses the development of an iconic persona through film screenings and discussions.
