Curriculum

CCR employs a we-run-it-ourselves way of doing things. Members share responsibility in curriculum planning, subject selection, and class presentations.

Each semester’s curriculum consists of whatever subjects the members choose; it changes from semester to semester. The subjects cover a wide variety of topics. 

Here are the Fall 2017 courses for which the members voted:

  • Human History:  A Different Perspective (Based on the works of Professor Yuval Noah Harari)
  • Science Seminar (including the suggested topic "Stem Cells")
  • Jerusalem:  From Ancient Times Up to the Founding of the State of Israel
  • Women of Fame or Infamy in History
  • The Korean War
  • The Dutch Golden Age (17th Century)
  • The History of Long Island
  • The Life and Music of Giuseppe Verdi
  • Speeches that Changed the World
  • Great Show Tunes and Musical Scenes
  • Mel Brooks Film Series

Miscellaneous “potpourri” topics (one class session each), guest speakers, and current events roundtables will be included in the program, as well.
