RISD CE Launches Winter Term With 100% Online Certificates

Rhode Island School of Design Continuing Education announces over 60 online courses for adults and teens this winter, as well as eight certificate programs now being offered 100% online.

Any RISD CE online course can be taken for personal or professional enrichment, and many can also be taken as part of an Online Certificate Program. Designed for students who are looking to accelerate their creative lives and work, subjects range from interior design, product development and graphic design to painting, photography and animation

“Moving forward we will be offering our adult certificate programs 100% online,” says Mariah Doren, director of program planning and development. “We are excited about the new opportunities and benefits online instruction offers; we found people really appreciate the flexibility it affords and we have been able to expand our audience to include students from all around the world.”

Register today, as many classes filled quickly this fall. To give you enough time to plan and gather supplies, the last day to register for our first session is Wednesday, January 6 at 5 pm EDT. Join us online this winter to stay on track with a certificate program, explore a new subject, or take your very first course in art and design!
