Spring Forward with Upcoming Enrichment Program Courses

As Daylight Saving Time extends our daily sunlight, and our thoughts turn to the natural renewal that spring brings, it’s the perfect time to renew your love for learning, as well!

The Enrichment Program at the University of Denver offers a wide range of non-credit courses exploring subjects from history and contemporary issues to science, literature, and the arts—without the pressures of exams, grades, or admission requirements.

Check out these upcoming courses in March, April, and May!
