Lifelong Learning & Travel
Lifelong Learning Program
The Lifelong Learning Program offers people of retirement and semi-retirement age an opportunity to expand knowledge and explore new ideas in an informal, noncompetitive environment. Learning occurs in a pleasant social atmosphere in classes with one’s peers. There are no exams and no grades or credits. There is no previous educational requirement. Rather, the opportunity exists to interact with friends old and new. This is a time when you may fulfill many of your dreams.
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.)
