Credit Workshops

Our credit workshops are enrollment-contingent, budgeted academic programs that may fall outside the boundaries of traditional Miami classes. These credit programs vary in length and credit hours and may be held on campus, in locations throughout Ohio, online, and globally to accommodate special population learners, such as those attending from education abroad/away, online, or on campus.

Non-Credit Programs

Our non-credit programs at Miami University offer students of all ages opportunities to improve skills for job training, career enhancement and personal enrichment. Non-credit workshop directors may choose to offer their workshop experiences to non-credit participants as a companion to the academic credit-bearing program.
