Pacific Union College's Extension Division is offering a number of educational opportunities to the local community this fall. These offerings include: 1) the Degree Completion Program, which is designed to help adult learners complete a degree they were unable to finish (currently offered in Napa and Santa Rosa); 2) the Adult Learning courses, regular, graded courses that yield college credit; 3) the College Early courses, which allow academy or high school juniors and seniors to earn transferable college credit early; and 4) Open College courses, which allow community members not seeking college credit to take regular PUC courses at a significantly reduced rate.

Among the courses offered to Napa Valley residents through the Extension Division this fall are a history class and a Japanese language class. In Napa, David Millard will teach History of Modern Ideas and Culture (HIST 496), an Adult Learning course, from October 2 through November 20. The class will meet from 6 to 10 p.m. on Wednesdays, in the Redwood Retirement Residence's multi-purpose room, which is generously being provided free of charge. The address is 2350 Redwood Road, Napa. This four-credit course meets the history or social science (cultural anthropology) requirement or a general education elective requirement.

The Japanese language class (JAPN 120), also an Adult Learning course, will be offered at PUC by Wataru Sasaki. The class meets from 6 to 6:50 p.m. every Monday and Wednesday from September 30 through December 11. This class, which does not meet the foreign-language requirement for the B.A. degree, provides the student with conversational tools showing the most practical approach to daily life.
