ATLANTIC UNIVERSITY

Check out A.U.’s new website at: www.AtlanticUniv.edu. Are you a Lifelong Learner? Atlantic University has the Online Courses for You! Almost all of the online courses offered at Atlantic University can be taken as part of the Lifelong Learning Program. This is a great option for those who do not wish to pursue a degree or certificate, but still want to participate in all that Atlantic University has to offer. There are no prerequisite requirements for participation in these courses. While the content of the Lifelong Learning courses are similar to the content in the degree program, these are of a less rigorous nature. Classes start January 9!

Meditation Teacher Training, Mythology and Symbolism, The Inner Life, or Transpersonal Visual Arts
