Looking for Professional Development?

Maybe taking a series of college credit courses is not what you’re looking for.  Maybe you just want a workshop, a weekend class or seminar around career-related topics. Marylhurst’s Professional Development Center offers a variety of coursework that is not-for-credit (meaning you are not pursuing a degree) and designed to enhance you as a professional.
