programs for adults


While Columbia College's division of Continuing and Community Education is primarily focused on youth and teen programs for the 2018/2019 Academic Year, we do offer a small handful of adult programs at Sherwood Community Music School, along with individual music lessons, which are open to all ages. In the Summer, our office hosts the week-long Advanced Placement Summer Institute, for classroom teachers.

Columbia College offers many opportunities for adult engagement though Columbia Online, our world-renown Dance Center, and the Museum of Contemporary Photography. Adult learners are also welcome to take individual music lessons at Sherwood Community Music School.
