OLLI expands course lineup for 2017 fall semester


The Osher Lifetime Learning Institute at American University will offer 94 study groups in the fall 2017 semester, the most in the institute’s 35-year history.

New classes at the institute, known as OLLI, will include astrophysics, the history of the Amazon, a discussion of Henry Fielding’s novel “Tom Jones,” Russian ballet after the revolution, and “Lincoln as Statesman.” Some popular past courses will also be repeated, including one on lesser-known D.C. landmarks.

Each course is eight to 10 weeks long, with weekly 90-minute sessions. Classes begin Sept. 25 and are held at 4801 Massachusetts Ave. NW. Membership is $300 per semester and includes up to three courses.
