English as a Second Language students
Southampton, N.Y. – Southampton College’s School of Continuing Studies will continue to offer East Enders courses varying from alcohol and substance abuse counseling to residential plumbing inspection to independent filmmaking.

Although the College's undergraduate liberal arts and sciences programs will be transferred to the campus of its sister college at C.W. Post in Brookville as of September 2005,  the School of Continuing Education will continue providing credit and non-credit courses and in addition the College will also continue to offer graduate programs in English and writing and education.

The School of Continuing Studies was originally established to serve the needs of a diverse community and the courses currently on offer truly reflect this, with adults living on the east end having the opportunity to seek personal enrichment, professional advancement or new careers through Continuing Education non-credit courses.

Courses offered include real estate, appraisal, the ever popular English as a second language, writing, foreign languages, health and legal professions, insurance, computers, and horticulture. Certificate programs, licensing programs and workshops are offered year round for the student who wants to increase their potential.

Of particular interest to health workers and those involved in social work, or those who are considering entering these professions is a program that leads to New York State Certification as a Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor (CASAC).  This program satisfies the minimum 350-hour education requirements as set forth by the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) and prepares the student for the CASAC examination.  This certification is recognized in 39 states, Canada and Mexico.

Each semester several lecture series are offered providing the perfect opportunity to explore philosophy, literature, classical music, and a host of topics with distinguished Southampton College faculty who share the same interests as the adult learner.
