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-classes, 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
- Highlights of African-American Literature
- Jews, Christians, and the Holocaust (Shoah)
- The Grimms’ Magic Tales
- Encountering Islam Beliefs and Muslim Practices
- Global Trends in International Migration
- Contemporary Philosophy of Mind
Registration is Now Open for Fall 2020 Classes
All Fall 2020 Courses will be taught virtually on Zoom.
Preregistration is required. Registration opening later this summer.
