Continuing Education

Continuing education at the University of North Carolina was formally organized in 1913 when a Bureau of Extension was established to expand the University’s resources to a greater number of North Carolina citizens. Since that time, continuing education has become a significant activity in a number of schools and departments throughout the University. It is also the primary function of the William and Ida Friday Center for Continuing Education, which offers a broad range of educational opportunities for part-time students and adult learners.

Continuing education at UNC-Chapel Hill includes degree or non-degree part-time study for academic credit (on campus or from a distance), noncredit professional development workshops and certificates, enrichment learning activities, daytime and evening lecture series and much more.
