We offer a wide range of course offerings, from pop culture to arts/crafts to life hacks to niche subject learning. Whatever you’re into – we have a class for you!
We know you’re busy during the day. That’s why our classes are at night with varying start times so that you’ll be able to fit a course or two into your schedule!
Our courses take place all over the city in a variety of locations, so there’s sure to be a course or two close to you. We know how much it sucks to spend your time in traffic…
The Quarter System
URBAN ELECTIVE operates on the quarter system with two terms per quarter. We offer FALL, WINTER, SPRING courses – there are no courses during the summer!
About URBAN ELECTIVE
We take special care in picking out each quarter’s course offerings, but we generally offer courses in following arenas: arts + crafts, personal finance, popular culture, DIY, and history.
Each course will be capped at 40 students so as to ensure that students have chance to learn material, meet other students, and have an overall positive experience.
Our courses meet once a week for six weeks. Courses usually take place in weekday evenings, with a handful of our classes taking place during the day and/or on weekends.
Our courses take place at local businesses like breweries, wineries, and restaurants – so you can enjoy a drink or two while you learn!
URBAN ELECTIVE STUDENT PERK
For all students who enroll in an URBAN ELECTIVE course, we throw a “SYLLABUS NIGHT” at the beginning of the quarter.
Held at a local brewery with food trucks galore, SYLLABUS NIGHT is a great way for students to get to know their fellow classmates (both in their own course in other courses!)
