Orangeburg, N.Y. — From learning how to deal with difficult people to preventing burnout in the workplace, 65 spring courses from the Center for Professional Development and Lifelong Learning at the Rockland Graduate Campus of Long Island University offers adult students a world of career and personal development opportunities.

Course titles for the spring semester include “Taming the Beast: Dealing with Difficult People,” “Burnout Prevention in the Workplace: Staying Motivated for the Long Term,” “Emphatic Listening,” “Managing Adopted Children throughout the Life Cycle” and “The Break-Up Survival Seminar.” Class starting times vary but most classes begin in March 2008 and are held through May.

The advanced, non-credit courses in education, business, real estate and career development at the Center have been designed to meet the ongoing needs of the individuals in the Hudson Valley and Bergen County region, all with the backing and resources of a major university. Day, evening and weekend classes are available.

Through a collaborative effort with the New York Real Estate Institute, NYREI will offer its full complement of New York State-approved courses at the Rockland Graduate Campus, allowing students to get their initial real estate license, or take required continuing education courses.

For those who view learning as a continuing, lifelong process, The Learning Collaborative within the Center is the perfect place to fulfill their scholastic passion. With such classes as “The Romantic Period in Classical Music,” “Bioethics,” “Filmic Views of Class Conflict in India and Pakistan” and “Science and Anti-Science,” there is something for everyone. In a unique arrangement, students and teachers work and learn together in a series of high caliber, mentally stimulating courses where the pleasures of learning, not just the materials being taught, are made a priority.

Also offered this summer is a unique science series for children ages 7 to 12. Super Science for Kids provides courses that are both educational and fun, including “Chemical Magic,” “Lego Star Wars and Motorized Machines,” “Crime Scene Investigation-CSI Science” and “Bridges, Towers and Structural Engineering.” Classes run July through August and are only $139 per session.
