Non-credit courses in topics ranging from Japanese cooking to website design will be offered this spring by the University of Arkansas at Monticello’s Department of Community Education.

“We have a lot of exciting classes set to begin this month,” said Memorie Dickson, program coordinator.  Classes include “Nikujaga” (a Japanese cooking class), “Putting Your Business or Organization Online,” “Conversational Spanish,” “How to Watch Movies,” “Self-Defense for Women,” “Cake Decorating,” “Zumba – Biggest Loser Style,” and “Fraud Prevention: What you don’t know about scams can hurt you.”

According to Dickson, space is limited in many classes, so early registration is encouraged.  Students wishing to register for a class should complete a registration form and submit payment at least five business days in advance.  Registration may be completed online at Click on “Community Education” for dates, times, fees and online registration instructions. Registration may also be completed by calling (870) 460-1327, or emailing Memorie Dickson at [email protected].
