University Without Walls
Through the Options Program, the university offer classes, workshops and seminars
covering a wide array of interests for all ages. Included are classes in academics,
computers, arts and crafts, business and vocations, dance and fitness, music, personal
development, recreation and special courses for mature adults. This service unit offers
the opportunity to join an active, creative community of lifelong learners. All classes
are non-credit and reasonably priced.
Chicago State University offers many credit and noncredit courses during the summer
