Seniors 65 and older can audit TU classes for free
Thomas University recently lowered the age at which members of the community can audit classes for free. Now seniors 65 and older can audit classes without paying an audit fee. (The fee for all others to audit classes is $100 per credit.)
“Life-long learners have the advantage of having Thomas University in the community with a variety of courses in the arts, sciences, and professional fields,” said Dr. Ann Landis, Executive Vice President and Provost. “Diverse students of all ages make classes that much more interesting because they bring different life experiences and perspectives.”
Some of the classes available for auditing include Introduction to Studio Art (drawing/painting/ceramics), Shakespeare, Survey of Early American Literature, Graphic Art/Website Design, Digital Photography, Spanish 101, Survey of Western and Non-Western Culture (art, music, literature, philosophy and religion Common Era through the Middle Ages), History of 20th Century America, History of Contemporary Latin America, Overview of American Politics, Congress, Current Issues in Life Science, Contemporary Ethical Issues in Business, Theories of Personal Relationships, and Cultural Anthropology.
“We want learners of any age to feel welcomed at TU, and we hope that lowering the age for auditing students to attend classes for free will help to send that message,” Landis said.
