Register now for low-cost Chinese culture courses
Oct. 27, 2011 | WMU News
KALAMAZOO--The Confucius Institute at Western Michigan University is accepting registrations for session II of its fall 2011 Chinese culture courses.
The low-cost courses are open to the public. A half-price tuition discount is offered to those age 55 and older and WMU students. WMU faculty and staff members pay no tuition. Some courses charge all participants a fee for materials, and those with low enrollment may be canceled.
Chinese culture classes are taught in English and offered to adults age 18 or older for personal enrichment, rather than academic credit.
