The Thomas Jefferson Center for the Study of Core Texts and Ideas

Executive Seminar

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. 

Upcoming Seminars

The next executive seminar will be scheduled soon.
