Continuing Education in the Great Books

Looking for more of a personal challenge than merely auditing a course?

Need to acquire professional development credit (CEUs) for your classical school or other workplace?

Think you might want to join the M.A. program in the future but just don’t have the time to commit right now?

Memoria College’s Continuing Education Units in Great Books may be just what you’re looking for. CEUs (Continuing Education Unit) provide lifelong learners, teachers, and homeschool instructors the opportunity not only to expand their understanding of how classical subjects should be taught, but to acquire the actual content knowledge of the subjects taught in a classical program, like classical mythology, classic art, and classic literature.

All of our 5-week seminar courses and select core courses can be taken for CEU credit. Those pursuing CEU credits participate fully in the courses that are open to them, receiving feedback and a grade from the professor. One Memoria College seminar is eligible for 4.5 CEUs and one core course is eligible for 13.5 CEUs.

Better yet, those who receive a B or higher can petition to have their credits transfer once they are admitted into the M.A. program!

Memoria College CEUs are also available for those who attend the Memoria College Summer Conference, Memoria Press Teacher Training Conferences, Sodalitas, and other select events. Just ask ahead of the event for more details. Please note that CEU credits gained in this way DO NOT transfer into the Memoria College MA program.

What is a CEU?

Many professionals, including educators, are required to earn continuing education units annually. Continuing education units are also available for students who want to enhance their academic skills for postsecondary education and/or to prepare for the General Education Development tests.

As defined by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET), “[o]ne (1) Continuing Education Unit (CEU) equals ten (10) contact hours of learner interaction with the content of the learning activity, which includes classroom, self-paced instruction, pre/post assignments, and/or homework in support of a learning outcome.” For more information about CEUs, visit the IACET website.

Memoria College CEUs are not a part of a licensed or accredited program. Rather, they are stand-alone credits for participation in our courses.

Where Can I Use My CEU?

Those who enroll in the Memoria College M.A. program can petition to have all courses taken for Memoria College CEU credit transferred into that program as long as they received a B or higher.

Institutions vary in terms of what they are looking for in CEU credits. Students should consult their institution concerning whether these CEUs are accepted by their institution. Highland Latin Schools and their affiliates accept Memoria College CEU credits.

CEUs are not transferable course credits that can be used towards degrees or programs outside of Memoria College.
