Lifelong Learning & Travel
Lifelong Learning Program
No exams. No grades. Just learn what you never had time to learn!
Lipscomb’s Lifelong Learning Program offers people who have time to expand their knowledge and explore new ideas, in a relaxing setting with remarkably knowledgeable university-level instructors -- where nothing is expected except to enjoy the joy of learning!
Choose from dozens of topics and classes in both a fall and spring term. Each term has two five-week sessions; classes meet for about 90 minutes each week. There are no educational pre-requisites, just the requirement that you bring your curiosity and your questions!
Cost is $60 per person for each class or $100 if you enroll in two or more classes in the same session. Many do! Some courses may require the purchase of a textbook. All suggested and required textbooks may be purchased in the university bookstore or at registration. Find out more information below:

Travel with or without a notebook!
Each year, Lipscomb offers several custom-designed, U.S.-based “travel learning” trips primarily for alums and friends. These “Summer Hostels” and other trips typically include activities not generally available to the public such as in a recent trip to the Northeast led by a noted artist alum who opened doors to artists’ studios and homes that simply are not available to the general public—or almost anyone else!
Plus, we’re now going global! Lifelong Learning’s new certificate program combines introductory classroom instruction followed by an experiential professor-guided tour for a “deep dive” into a specific area of the globe. Participants who complete required courses prior to the trip can earn a certificate related to their study. (Coursework is not required for travel, just for the awarding of a certificate.)
Here is a full itinerary for the next trip. For deadlines and other information, call 615.966.6216 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
