Most of our participants are adults and working professionals. Programs are often scheduled on weekday evenings, weekends, online, or a mix of the three. Programs may be held on the Fresno State campus, off-campus (if subject matter or audience warrants a specific location), as video-based courses, or as self-paced online learning modules.
