Community Enrichment

Whittier College offers community enrichment programs designed to meet the needs of working adults and entrepreneurs who wish to further their language skills for the corporate world, as well as those of individuals of all ages seeking exposure to other cultures.

Alternatively, members of the community and non-Whittier students interested in earning academic credit toward a degree or credential are welcome to enroll in a summer course at the College. Whittier's Summer Program consists of three sessions, offering traditional and online classes.

Community enrichment courses are non-degree applicable and do not require admission to the College. Individuals who intend to enroll in our summer program, however, must apply for non-degree admission.
