This fall, Swarthmore’s successful Lifelong Learning Program will return for its 16th year with three new courses spanning the liberal arts.

Lifelong Learning is an adult learning program developed by Swarthmore faculty in 2002. The program is designed for Swarthmore alumni and other adults who are interested in continuing their education not for academic credit, but for the sake of learning itself. Courses are taught by Swarthmore professors and organized into small seminar-style classes. Each course meets for two and a half hours per week over the course of eight weeks.

This year, courses will be offered on Tuesday evenings in Boston, New York City, and Philadelphia. The courses are:

“Black in America: Wright, Ellison, Morrison” by Alexander Griswold Cummins Professor of English Philip Weinstein
