as it should be –
Senior College is learning in a relaxed, non-competitive setting. I love that!
Information About Membership, Courses, and Sites
York County Senior College gives a new definition, a different perspective and an increasingly popular dimension to the traditional college. At YCSC you can participate in lifelong learning by enrolling in a variety of courses designed to fulfill your interests.
Remember: No prerequisite, no tests, no homework, no grades, no papers to write, no stress. Just intellectually stimulating opportunities to learn -- and to enjoy the camaraderie inherent in small classes.
Classes from such diverse subjects as music, art, history, physical science, writing, culture, film, creative problem-solving, bridge, cooking, religions, baseball, and world problems—each of which has been offered in recent semesters. Most classes run once a week for 8 weeks, starting in September and March.
Members of YCSC are eligible to take classes at any of the 17 Maine Senior Colleges without paying additional membership dues; just pay the applicable course fees.
