BELLINGHAM – The Academy for Lifelong Learning, supported through Western Washington University, provides mature adults with a diverse spectrum of academic and cultural programming and offers many enriching academic programs in fall 2012.

Academy for Lifelong Learning is inspired by the belief that “a curious mind never retires.”

Programs include traditional liberal arts and sciences topics with an emphasis on interdisciplinary exploration. Class sessions will utilize formats that encourage discussion and exchange of knowledge. Day-long excursions will engage participants in the arts, sciences or other academic and cultural topics while exploring an interesting new place. Lifelong Learning courses are geared towards “fun” learning, and do not follow the traditional exam/homework format.

The length of each program can vary from one day to six weeks. Upcoming courses include:
