Preparing the perfect charcuterie boards for the holidays, photography in the city of Detroit, and a history lesson on one of the area’s most iconic department stores are just a few of the offerings from Schoolcraft College Personal & Professional Learning taking place this fall.

 Designed to teach a new skill or explore a new hobby, a wide range of non-credit courses are offered to every member of the community.

Some of the highlights of classes include:

  • New intensity workout classes, which includes Fit & Fun Drumming and Strong Nation.
  • New renewing and restorative yoga classes, including Yoga for Better Bone Health & Balance, Dynamic Flow Yoga and Vinyasa Style Yoga.
  • Culinary classes with a holiday focus including new Charcuterie Boards for Holiday Entertaining, German Breads — which features holiday Stollen — as well as beverage classes such as Cocktails for the Holidays and Champagne & Sparkling Wines. 
  • Detroit Photography, a new elective for the photography certificate.
  • J. L. Hudson’s at the holidays, a Lifelong Learning lecture that features an extensive display of Hudson’s memorabilia. This course, which returns after a four-year hiatus, is back with new video clips.

Registration opens at 8 a.m. July 19, with online, walk-in and mail-in registration options available. More than 400 courses are offered in a variety of areas, including fitness, aquatics, art, music, languages, culinary, photography and professional development.

A career program that runs only in the fall includes Level One of Digital Sculpting with Autodesk Alias. Digital sculpting is used by class A surface designers, sculptors, and modelers in the automotive, technology and other industries. This is a four-class certificate program. Learn more on the Schoolcraft College’s Digital Sculpting program web page.

Other classes that are only offered during the fall semester include:

  • Ceramics IV: Advanced Hand Building
  • Photography Fundamentals of Lighting
  • The Business of Event Planning
  • Event Invitations: Impress the Guest

Although registration opens July 19, students can register throughout the fall semester. Most PPL classes begin Sept. 9, but others begin at different points throughout the semester. To view the fall schedule of courses, visit schoolcraft.edu/ppl-fall.
