Auditing lets you learn what you love without needing to write papers or take tests.

Have you ever wanted to dig deeper into literature or learn a new language, but you don’t have the time necessary to write papers and study for exams? Maybe you have no particular need to earn a graduate degree, but you enjoy learning just for the fun of it.

Auditing a class at Signum University offers you the opportunity to learn from world-class scholars on the topics that interest you most.
