Nicholls Introduces New Non-Credit Classes

THIBODAUX —Nicholls State University’s Office of Continuing Education will offer dozens of non-credit courses this spring, including new classes in international cuisine and American Sign Language basics.

“International Culinary Voyage” sessions held on Jan. 26, Feb. 16, March 9 and May 4 will introduce community members to multinational cooking styles, with each class focused on a different cuisine: Italian, French, Greek and Latin. Students will spend four hours discussing the country’s culinary history, watching chef demonstrations and preparing — and eating — a three-course meal.

Beginning Jan. 28, a new eight-week course in American Sign Language will teach participants basic vocabulary, fingerspelling and sentence structure. Other classes offered this spring include computer literacy, floral design, hatha yoga, notary prep, photography basics, Web design, Zumba and more.

Participants can register online or call 985-448-4444 for more information.

Currently, all non-credit courses are taught on the Nicholls campus, but the Office of Continuing Education will soon be expanding to include classes at the Duhé Building, 235 Civic Center Blvd., in Houma. Nicholls is looking for individuals willing to share their talents and ideas by becoming a course instructor. For more information, call 985-448-4444.
