Spring 2014

 

Yale Alumni College Spring 2014 Semester
 
 These post-graduate, non-credit courses will be offered in New York and New Haven and are open to Yale Alumni and their family members in seminar format with 10-25 participants. The courses being offered in Greenwich will be open to the public at large, and will be taught in a lecture format.They will be limited to a maximum number of participants per course on a first-come, first-served basis. See registration sites for more details.
 
All of these courses will be conducted by Yale-associated faculty – some of whom are Yale professor emeriti, and others of whom are currently active as Yale faculty members. Each 1½ hour class will run for six sessions per semester with a reasonable amount of reading in advance of each session.
 
Opportunities for engagement beyond the classroom are available; for example, this past fall we experienced a special treat at the Storm King Sculpture Center with a Yale Alumni College only guided tour by a Yale Art major. Other trips included an architectural boat tour around Manhattan and a specially guided tour of the Cloisters by two Yale Ph.D. students.
 
Following are the titles of the courses offered in the spring of 2014
