Register now for Senior Scholars courses; discounts available for faculty and staff

The Siegal Lifelong Learning Program at Case Western Reserve University offers unique learning opportunities for adults through its Senior Scholars Program. This 11-week program meets three afternoons per week and features academic lectures by university faculty and local experts on a variety of topics. These non-credit courses are lecture style, but also offer an informal and interactive opportunity to ask questions and discuss the topics of the day. Senior Scholars meets at the College Club (2348 Overlook Road in Cleveland Heights).

The Senior Scholars Program offers flexibility in its scheduling options. Students can register for the full semester of courses, which meets three times a week, or for just one or two days a week. Pricing will vary based on the number of days for which the student registers. Former and current CWRU faculty and staff may receive a 10 percent discount.

The spring semester of Senior Scholars will feature several Case Western Reserve faculty, including:

  • Justin Buchler, associate professor of political science;
  • Peter Haas, professor of Jewish studies;
  • Marie Lathers, professor of French and humanities; and
  • Kimberly Emmons, associate professor of English.

Spring courses begin Feb. 2.
