Module Description

Providing learning opportunities for people over the age of fifty.

Elon University’s lifelong education program just completed its ninth year this spring! It has been a wonderful success and continues to get better and better thanks to the great work of our dedicated volunteers. The program was designed to offer non-credit learning opportunities to people ages 50 and older. The learning institute, called LIFE@Elon, features weekly presentations conducted in an engaging format. The learning community is led by current and retired Elon faculty and staff members and other area educators.

There are 12 classes offered per semester (fall and spring) and they are held virtually this year.

The yearlong membership fee is normally $150, but this year we are offering the program for $100, which includes enrollment in all 24 sessions.

Examples of sessions examined in previous semesters are:

  • A Short History of Jazz
  • How Media Shapes Politics
  • Music Theatre at Elon
  • Stem Cell Research and the Future of Health Care
  • The Drama of Our Oceans
  • Post-Civil War History
  • Cathedrals of Europe
