The Division of Online and Continuing Studies (DOCS)  is continuing PSU’s tradition of offering a quality community education program.  We offer a range of courses that will appeal to the varied interests of the members of our community in central New Hampshire.  CEUs (continuing education units) are available for some courses.

In addition, we are pleased to offer you access to a variety of non-credit online courses and certificates for your personal and/or professional development through online partnerships with  Education to Go® Gatlin Education Services and Mindedge.  These partnerships provide students the flexibility to complete courses at their own pace from the comfort of their own homes or offices.

If you have an idea for a Community Education course or are interested in teaching a class let us know!
