Are you looking for affordable and fun classes? You have come to the right spot! Southwestern's Community Education & Workforce Development department offers a variety of life-long learning and personal exploration opportunities to enrich your life.
We offer classes at both of our beautiful campuses in Coos Bay and Brookings, as well off-site locations in the more rural communities. All of our Community Ed courses are noncredit. Whether you are looking for an art class or need to get your flagger certification card, we’ve got you covered. The best part is our instructors are highly qualified individuals from our very own communities.
Not only do we offer the face-to-face classroom experience but we also offer hundreds of online classes and programs.
