Registration is now open for spring semester programs offered by OLLI at MSU
Registration is now open for spring semester 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.
OLLI at MSU is celebrating 20 years of lifelong learning in the Gallatin Valley in 2022. In addition to OLLI’s traditional offerings, many special anniversary events are planned for OLLI at MSU members and the public.
Over 40 noncredit enrichment programs are being offered throughout the spring semester. OLLI course topics covered include Yellowstone National Park; the building blocks of opera; history’s close calls; climate and weather of Southwest Montana; nuclear weapons, solar energy for your home; environmental law; Einstein’s world; and numerous writing workshops. 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 spring, OLLI at MSU is offering ten Side Trip Lectures on Mondays from 3 to 5 p.m. These lectures will cover topics ranging from geothermal energy to the Yellowstone volcanic system and from classical music to biofilm. 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 available for OLLI at MSU members.
OLLI also offers free community programs, including the longstanding monthly Friday Forum, evening lectures in partnership with the Belgrade Community Library, and a semester reception on January 5.
Spring programming will include a mix of face-to-face and online options. Recordings of many online programs will also be available to members. To view more details about spring programs and 20th anniversary events, including the delivery and location, please visit montana.edu/olli/offerings.
