For five days in August (Monday-Friday, August 21-25), BYU professors, LDS seminary and institute instructors and experts from a variety of fields will teach 1,000 classes on topics such as marriage and family, communication, health, history, finance, personal development and a wide variety of gospel subjects at BYU’s Campus Education Week, one of the largest continuing education programs in the country.
“He that receiveth light and continueth in God receiveth more light,” the theme for this year, is taken from the Doctrine and Covenants section 50 verse 24. Classes will focus on strengthening the soul, increasing knowledge and helping attendees to bless the lives of others.
