Adult Education Seminars
As a precaution to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. All remaining seminars in the Winter/Spring 2020 term have been canceled. Please visit www.newberry.org/covid19 for regular updates regarding Newberry operations.
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
Classes are offered once a week: during the day and evenings Tuesdays through Thursdays, and during the morning and afternoon on Saturdays.
