After 17 years of successful operation, Learning in Retirement (LIR) continues to offer classes designed for those who want to pursue learning in an academic setting once they have finished their formal education. The majority of our students are 50 years or older and most are retired. They are people who share a love of learning and a desire for personal growth.
The LIR program features:
• Two hour classes
• Eight week
• No tests or grades
There are three sessions throughout the year:
- Fall: October through December (8 weeks)
- Winter: January through March (8 weeks)
- Spring: March through May (8 weeks)
Classes are designed specifically for those age 50 and above who want to learn for the pure enjoyment of learning. LIR encourages participation without regard to previous levels of formal education.
Course topics include:
- Great Books
- Current News & Events
- Literature & Poetry
