Life Long Learning in the GU Learning Community

The Georgetown University Association of Retired Faculty and Staff (GUARFS) invites you to join us in a life-long learning activity. We offer non-credit mini-courses, usually six per semester. The courses are taught, on a volunteer basis, by retired faculty and others on a wide variety of topics, such as politics, art, literature, and science, that engage the community in the intellectual life of the University.

Recent courses have included:

  • Exoplanets, the Habitable Zone, and Greenhouse Warming
  • Psalms of Lamentation: Dealing with Suffering
  • Gabriel García Márquez and Magical Realism
  • Jews, Christians, and the Holocaust (Shoah)
  • The Grimms’ Magic Tales
  • Encountering Islam Beliefs and Muslim Practices
  • Controversies in Global Business 
  • Putin’s World
