Lifelong Learning

Lifelong Learning courses are free and are specifically designed and developed to meet the needs of older adults. Lifelong Learning represents a full range of offerings from vocational classes to the pursuit of long standing educational goals. Course offerings span several disciplines, including computers, health & wellness, business, language, theatre, and visual arts.

Students will benefit from these classes by gaining knowledge, learning new skills, socializing, and staying healthy. Lifelong Learning and Older Adult instructors are skilled teachers and specialists in their fields; and are passionate about what they teach and are committed to making your experience a positive one.

A healthy mix of both physical and intellectual activity as we age helps us maintain our overall well-being. Engaging in lifelong learning stimulates our brains and keeps our most important assets sharp. We hope that you will find our classes of interest and that you will join us, again or anew, in your pursuit of lifelong learning.

Whether you are a first-time college student, a transfer student, are returning to school after one or more semesters, or are taking classes to upgrade your job skills, College of the Siskiyous can assist you in achieving your goals.
