The College of Extended Learning at Northeastern State University has released its latest catalog of continuing education courses.
Among some of the new offerings are cybersecurity courses. NSU Continuing Education Coordinator Anthony McCarty said interested students can take an introductory cybersecurity course, which teaches students the basics of cybersecurity. There is also the Cyber Security Boot Camp program for those who have a basic understanding of cyber security and are looking to gain professional skills by the time they complete the program.
“Given the exponential growth of the cybersecurity industry and the expected continuation of that growth over the next few years, this is a way for people to enter the field now rather than a few years from now,” McCarty said.
Another offering starting this fall are professional development courses for start-ups in Spanish from September to November. Classes will be available virtually. The NSU Broken Arrow campus has partnered with the Uma Center and the Hispanic Small Business Association to deliver these courses.
“These courses are designed so entrepreneurs whose first language is Spanish can have the opportunity to learn how to start a business in the United States,” McCarty said. “These courses were created because there is a lack of learning resources for native Spanish speakers in this area. Continuing education exists to reduce barriers for those looking to learn and improve their lives. ‘one of the ways we’ve successfully lowered the barriers to entrepreneurship and small business ownership.”
NSU Continuing Education offers 245 courses, 43 test preparation opportunities, and 43 certificates. Courses are available in various disciplines, including but not limited to business, healthcare, marketing, technology skills, and more. They are also open to learners of all ages.
