While the Jefferson Center’s primary purpose is undergraduate education, we believe that the study of the great books is valuable throughout one’s life, and that by spreading that study more broadly, we can help people to become more thoughtful citizens and to experience the joys of studying the great books. The executive seminars seek to realize that goal through regular classes, available at a minimal cost, in which adults from the community read and discuss core texts under the guidance of an affiliate of the Jefferson Center.
The next Executive Seminar will take place in Houston on Sunday, January 25. The topic will be Shakespeare’s Coriolanus. The discussion will be led by Jefferson Center Assistant Director Erik Dempsey.
If you have questions about the seminar, or if you are interested in participating in it, please contact the program office at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
