Take a Class For The Fun of It!

I am pleased to present our Summer 2019 Course Catalog and my first as the new Program Director. I bring to UNF Division of Continuing Education more than 10 years of experience in adult education. I am excited to help LEARN Jacksonville continue to grow and thrive. As we move into our 11th year of providing personal enrichment courses to our community, I look forward to sharing with you a love of learning and providing an opportunity to open doors to new thoughts, experiences and skills.


Here at LEARN Jacksonville, we are changing! Not only do we have a new director, we also have a new catalog layout. I think you will find the new design enables you to more easily find courses that spark your interest. In addition to our consistently popular classes such as “Introduction to Spanish,” “The Professor’s Position Trading Course,” “Beginning Creative Watercolor,” and photography classes, you will find some exciting new additions.


Are you curious about how to take your interest in wine to the next level? Then check out our newest class, “How to Become a Sommelier,” where you can take the first step to break into the mysterious world of wine. (See page 14) With the growth of online streaming platforms, production companies are buying record numbers of scripts. Attend our “How to Sell Your Books and Scripts to Hollywood” one-day workshop to learn about how to get your story on the big screen. (See page 12)


Do you wish your photos had that “wow” factor? Learn from our expert photography instructor about tips for taking outstanding pictures in the field in our new photography class, “Creating Photos with Impact.” (See page 10) Whatever your passion, there is a class for you. I look forward to seeing you in a class soon and happy learning!
