Registration is now open for fall semester courses and programs offered by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Montana State University. Programming includes courses, lectures, forums, field trips and book discussion groups for the intellectually curious aged 50 and over.
Eleven noncredit enrichment courses are being offered for the fall semester. Topics covered include Russian culture and history; free speech; bison ranching; transportation policy and planning; artificial intelligence; global civics; Bob Dylan; Christian nationalism; humor and the English language; angling around the world; and Montana Native trailblazers. OLLI courses are typically offered once a week over four to six weeks. The cost for courses and workshops ranges from $40 to $75 with an OLLI membership.
For fall, OLLI at MSU is offering nine Side Trip Lectures on Mondays from 3 to 5 p.m. These lectures will cover topics ranging from circadian rhythms to the Yellowstone volcanic system and from viruses and vaccines to tornadoes. Side trips; three book discussion groups; the How It’s Made field trips; and behind the scenes previews of arts performances with Preludes and Performances are all free with an OLLI membership.
OLLI also offers free community programs, including the longstanding monthly Friday Forum and evening lectures in partnership with the Belgrade Community Library.
