UC Riverside Extension: Reading out to the community

Continuing education opportunities for everyone

We take pride in providing individual attention to students and to serving the community's changing needs.

Our courses are:

  • Open to the public.
  • Credit and noncredit courses, seminars and special programs.
  • Taught by professionals with real world experience in their fields.

We take pride in providing individual attention to students and to serving the community's changing needs. Course formats include one-day workshops, weekend programs, seminars, intensive short courses and courses that meet once a week during the 10-week academic quarter. Many classes are offered at night and on weekends to accommodate busy schedules. Custom-designed courses are also presented at employers' work sites.

You can enroll in one of our many professional certificate programs, which offer concentrated study in specific fields. A certificate program is a sequence of courses that helps you acquire practical instruction to stay current with new developments in your field, qualify for a new job or justify a promotion, or change careers completely.
