Marian College offers several walk-in courses


FOND DU LAC -- Marian College in Fond du Lac is offering a way to get your feet wet in the pool known as "college."

Walk-in courses are a good option for stay-at-home moms, senior citizens, people interested in returning to college on a part-time basis, and high school students interested in taking a college course during their senior year.

"Registering for a class or two provides a great opportunity either to begin or continue your education," said Stacey Akey, assistant vice president and dean of enrollment management. "I encourage you to learn first hand the benefits of the Marian experience."

Courses that are available for walk-ins include Introduction to Photography, which focuses on the understanding and use of the camera in photography and filmmaking, and also a brief unit on the history of photography. Music appreciation emphasizes the development of listening skills, as well as the opportunity to enhance appreciation of music, such as jazz and western art music.

Other courses include: Art Fundamentals, Fiber Arts, Introduction to Art Therapy, English Composition, Elementary French and German, World Civilization I and II, Computer Application in Business, Principles of Management, Introduction to College Algebra, Music Fundamentals, Philosophy and Values, general Psychology, Introduction to Sociology, Foundations of Christian Experience, and Introduction to Women's Studies. Some of these courses meet during the evening.

The registrar's office can aid in the free application process and in signing up for classes. Financial aid is still available for individuals who are taking six or more credits, or attaining a degree. Tuition is affordable for auditing courses, and the college also offers a senior discount. Tuition fees are due upon start of course.
