Lifelong Learning at Swarthmore Announces New Courses for Spring Semester

Winter scene on campus

This spring, Swarthmore’s successful Lifelong Learning Program resumes with a pair of 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 spring, courses will be offered in New York City, and Philadelphia. The courses are:

"Technological Change and Society" by Professor of Economics John Caskey
Location: New York City
Dates and Times: Tuesdays, 6:45 – 9:15 p.m., Feb. 6 – Mar. 27, 2018

Location: Philadelphia
Dates and Times: Thursdays, 6:45 – 9:15 p.m., February 1 - March 29, 2018, but not March 15
