Adult Education Seminars
The Summer term is moving online, and registration is now open! Browse the upcoming courses to find the right class for you.
The Newberry Seminars Program is grounded in the idea that people enjoy learning in small classes through an open exchange of knowledge and conversation. Our program offers a stimulating series of non-credit, adult education classes that encourage dialogue on subjects in the humanities that relate to the Newberry’s vast collections. Experts teach literature, music, history, philosophy, religion, language, genealogy, and creative writing in the classrooms of one of the world’s premier research and reference libraries.
Seminars differ in size, duration, cost, and format. The Seminars Program includes three terms:
- Winter/Spring: mid-February through early May
- Summer: June through early August
- Fall: mid-September through early December
