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.
