“Be a student so long as you still have something to learn, and this will mean all your life,” said American financier Henry Doherty. In this spirit, the Rosemont College Forum kicks off another semester of non-credit offerings for adult learners on February 9.
Baseball, photography, religion, film, antiques, and more will be explored in coffee lectures, three-week courses, and six-week courses this spring. On March 14, Rosemont President Sharon Latchaw Hirsh, Ph.D. ’70 will return to the classroom to present “Northern Renaissance Art.” Though most classes are held during the day, a special evening lecture will take place February 29. Dr. Paul Mojzes, a professor of religious studies at Rosemont, will delve into the historic relationship between two faiths in “Jewish Roots of Christianity.”
The Forum will also take two daylong excursions this semester. On offer are trips to New York City on February 22 to The Lion King on Broadway, and to the acclaimed Newseum in Washington, D.C. on March 21. Registration includes bus transportation and tickets.
Classes are held on Rosemont’s main campus in Kaul Hall. Instructors include current and retired Rosemont College faculty members, as well as scholars and experts from the greater Philadelphia community.
