Take a Class For The Fun of It!

Welcome to LEARN Jacksonville’s Fall 2019 Course Catalog!


Since starting as the Program Director in January, I continue to be excited to be a part of the Division of Continuing Education team. I am enjoying getting to know you all more, making new connections both inside and out of the UNF community, and looking for ways to grow and improve. Thank you for the warm welcome!


One of my first priorities was to recruit and seek out new course offerings, and I am excited to introduce you to 14 new classes and 10 new instructors! These additions bring with them brand-new courses based on popular topics, fresh faces, and exciting new opportunities to learn for the fun of it. In addition to new classes, I am happy to welcome back our well-known instructors and classes. In total this term, there are almost 100 classes and 40 instructors, making this one of the most robust yet!


The new Back to Basics series explores natural skills for sustainability. To kick off and introduce the series, there are three classes that practice skills for self-sufficiency: Cheese Making for Beginners; Backyard Chicken Keeping; and Herbalism – Teas and Tinctures.


Join the popular craft of brewing your own beer at home in our Brew Your Own: New to Homebrewing Beer class. Or if you are interested in spirits, check out The World of Whiskey and learn about the history and process of distillation of this trendy drink.


Gear up for the holiday season! Make planning your holiday party a breeze in Entertaining at Home with Ease or decorate your house with pop and pizzazz that will impress your guests in Accessorize Your Home to Express Your Personality. Looking for the perfect gift? Create beautiful handmade jewelry for your loved ones in The Art of Wire Wrap Jewelry.


And these are just a few of the great course offerings this term. Have fun exploring the catalog and discovering your new passion.


I look forward to seeing you in a class soon and happy learning!
