:: UT SAGE Curriculum

If you want an opportunity to learn about a wide variety of topics and to interface with interesting people in a learning environment, then SAGE has the curriculum model for you.

The SAGE format provides three sessions each year. In each session, you can spend 6 consecutive Mondays expanding your mind by attending from 1 to 4 seminars, each lasting 1 ½ hours. These seminars are directed by university professors, both current and retired, by professionals with specific expertise or by members who have developed a keen interest in a particular subject.

SAGE’s goal is to fill each session with topics from a variety of disciplines, running the gamut from science and history to art appreciation or in-depth analysis of a given subject matter.

Examples of SAGE’s success can be seen in the seminars offered over the last few years:
