CSUSB - Palm Desert Offering Summer No Credit Classes

CSUSB is opening summer classes for older residents, for the sheer joy of learning.

The Osher Lifelong Learning Center Institute at Cal State San Bernardino’s Palm Desert Campus is accepting applications for its summer quarter of classes, which begin on June 12. 

This summer’s Osher classes include courses on famous mutinies; new thoughts an modern religions; Mexican art, culture and personalities; a selection of significant political films; and a class focused on the history of computers. 

“Summer is a great time for valley residents to try the Osher Institute if they have not already taken our classes, since outdoor activities are so limited during our warm months,” said Steve McAdams, program administrator. 

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is designed for adults 50 and older who want to experience learning for the fun of it.  Courses are offered for no credit, and there are no grades, no tests or homework for the students.   The institute offers quarterly memberships for $150 and courses typically cover subject areas in arts and humanities, natural sciences and social sciences.

I will be 50 in September, I dont consider myself "older" yet but the classes sound interesting. I would like to see design classes, i.e, landscape design, interior design, etc.
