Welcome to your University of Utah Coursera Connection

Up-skill, Re-Skill, or Pursue a Passion

Continuing Education is excited to offer you free access to the Coursera catalog of courses and certificates for a limited time. Register now and you’ll have until September 30 to complete any of the programs Coursera offers online.

The COVID-19 outbreak has forced us all to spend a little more time at home. This can be a valuable opportunity to learn skills that will help us get back to work, improve our ability to work remotely, add some skills to move up in our careers, prepare for a full-time undergrad or graduate program, or even fulfill personal growth goals.

No matter your interest, Coursera will enable you to:

  • Master the most in-demand technology and business skills to excel in your role
  • Enjoy an engaging and interactive learning experience with leading instructors
  • Work at your own pace with bite-sized sessions and a self-paced learning model
  • Earn university-accredited certifications in industry-vetted disciplines
