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 2016 courses for which the members voted:

  • An “Investigative Journalism” Movie Series
  • Books That Shaped America
  • Inventions That Have Changed the World
  • The History of Anti-Semitism: Lessons Learned?
  • The Mysterious World of Sherlock Holmes
  • The Smithsonian Institution and The Library of Congress
  • Personalities of Country Music
  • Migration and Immigration Through History
  • Presidential Elections

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