If you’re considering becoming involved with a noncredit enrichment course at DelVal but aren’t sure if it’s right for you, read on to learn about the many benefits that go along with taking a course.
Personal Intellectual Growth
Participating in a noncredit enrichment course will allow you to expand your mind and learn information about an area that interests you. You’ll have the chance to analyze, examine and research an interesting topic and gain knowledge you’ll be able to utilize for the rest of your life. Taking the time to do this for yourself will be fulfilling, and learning is always a rewarding experience.
Explore New Opportunities
By enrolling in a noncredit enrichment course and becoming more familiar with a certain area of study, you may find that you’re interested in making it a larger part of your life. Whether it’s volunteer work, a hobby or a new career, you can find out more about your interests and how you can work with them in your everyday life.
The noncredit enrichment courses are simply learning experiences meant to teach you something. They aren’t graded, and you won’t be receiving credit for them. People typically find that they enjoy taking classes when they aren’t faced with the pressure of graded assignments or the consequences of missing a class.
Meet New People
It’s always great to meet new people and make friends with others who are interested in the same things that you are. During the time you spend in a course, you’ll interact with other people as a part of your personal enrichment. Hearing their ideas and collaborating with them is part of what makes the experience so rewarding.
Exposure to College and Community Professionals
Your noncredit course will be taught by a professional from DelVal or the community who will share their expertise with you and the rest of the class. You can be confident in knowing that the professional is skilled in this area of focus to make for a wholesome learning experience. These professionals strive to teach the courses through an informative but hands-on approach to make sure they’re both enjoyable and comprehensive.
Trying Something New
Some people register for a course on a topic they know little about just to gain some perspective. Learning about something new is an eye-opening experience that’s often very rewarding. If at the end of the course you find that this area of focus isn’t for you, at least you tried something new, learned a lot and met new people.
