Administrative History

The Department of Evening Classes (1966-) offers classes after 4:00pm at Brigham Young University.

The Department of Evening Classes was established in 1966 and was part of the Division of Continuing Education. The Department of Evening Classes supports 59 of the university's 74 academic departments by offering courses taught by their faculty and part–time instructors after 4:00 p.m. Evening Classes lets the university leverage scarce faculty and physical resources by providing more courses in the evening hours. Most sections offered as Evening Classes are undergraduate courses. Enrollees include 59% of the university's undergraduate students and 14% of the graduate students. Nearly 98% of the students who graduate from Brigham Young University enroll in evening classes, taking an average of 7.5 courses. Those who served as directors of the department were: Ilene Webb (1966-1970), Frank Santiago (1970-1981), Keith L. Smith (1981-1983), Kenneth W. Anderson (1983-1994), Ralph V. Larson (1994-2007), and Scott L. Howell (2008- ).
