Journeys and Discoveries

It is good to have an end to journey toward, but it is the journey that matters in the end.
― Ursula K. Le Guin

Explore the world with classes in history, art, languages, writing, and more

Journeys often have itineraries, yet we can rarely guess all that we’ll learn along the way.

Take Charles Darwin, for example. He visited the Galápagos Islands in 1835 as a naturalist on a five-year sea voyage. But it wasn’t until over 20 years later—in 1859—that he published On the Origin of Species, a text that fundamentally changed the way we understand the world.

Make some discoveries of your own this year. Whether you are learning a language for a trip abroad, exploring the world through a history class, or sharing an epiphany in a writing course, Continuing Studies can guide you.
