Classes in NYC, from language lessons and computer courses to continuing studies and photography classes, are available year-round, online and off.

Classes in NYC cover every subject you’d care to study, with commitments ranging from a one-off workshop to a full-fledged degree program. Is baking and pastry your thing? Learn to make cupcakes better than Magnolia’s—then sign up for a cake-decorating class when you’re done. And you can find a fitness class to suit any level of ability or interest, from meditative yoga classes to high-spirited dance classes. Language lessons are taught in nearly every tongue spoken; take Spanish classes so you can get real-world practice in your everyday life. That second language might come in handy if you’re looking to advance in your career. So might social media skills, computer programming knowledge or web design acumen. You can get all of this and more, online and off, in New York’s numerous classes and continuing education programs. Go ahead. Take a class and become the polymath you always wanted to be.
