With so many people furloughed or laid off as a result of the coronavirus crisis, Purdue University Global is offering free online courses so that those affected can expand their professional skills and prepare to return to the workforce.
Purdue’s free online courses are available for anyone who is furloughed, laid off, or just looking to make a career change as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. You can complete a single course now that you may later apply toward a certificate, micro-credential, or undergraduate degree.
Choose from free courses in Business and Management, Communication and Composition, Health Sciences, Human Services, Professional Studies, Psychology, and Social Science. Each course is structured to include interactive live seminars and one-on-one support from faculty and advisors. Head on over here to see the list of free courses and request more information.
If you’re interested in diving deeper into a specific subject area, Purdue is also offering 25% tuition discounts on online course series and micro-credentials.
The completion of a micro-credential is documented on your official transcript and demonstrates to employers the skills and competencies you’ve mastered. Head on over here to request more information regarding Purdue’s discounted online courses.
