​New Year, New Career

  
Boston College is offering a range of part time adult (19+) course starting in January 2018.

December is traditionally the time to begin making plans for the new year, including New Year's resolutions. While eating more healthily might be at the top of most lists, you might also include items such as 'learn a new skill' or 'start a new career'. Boston College's part time adult courses can be the first step towards that goal. 
 
Study time is just one day a week (some as little as 3 hours) for between 19 and 40 weeks so the courses can fit in around your current commitments. Courses available​ include...
