Continuing Education in Art

Learning throughout Life

The department of art and design recognizes that learning is not confined to the traditional college years but takes place throughout life. As an outreach service to the local community we make departmental resources available to the local adult public through a series of courses offered within the MSSU Continuing Education (CE) program. These courses can help meet one's interests and needs for personal enrichment. They are open to any adult in the community.

Community members interested in taking one of these courses may browse and sign-up on our Continuing Education Page. Priority is given to students who have signed up and have their course selection(s) paid before the first class meeting.

Contact Continuing Education by phone at 417-625-9785 or by email at for more information.

Please note: Continuing Education classes are not included under the Sixty-five Plus (65+) program.
