Schreiner offers auditing opportunities to seniors

“An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest,” wrote Benjamin Franklin, and it’s good to know there are still some solid investments to be had. If you are 55 years old or older, you can invest in knowledge by auditing classes at Schreiner University for a nominal fee. Class offerings for the fall 2011 semester will include courses such as Introduction to Film, American Literature through the Civil War, British Literature through the Renaissance, Literary Criticism, Current American Hispanic American Thought and Literature, Theatre History, Advanced Studies in Shakespeare, History of Western Music, Advanced Music Theory, a number of history and political science courses and philosophy of religion.

Classes are open first to regularly enrolled Schreiner students, then to auditors on a space-available basis. Class size is restricted to maintain Schreiner’s 13:1 student-teacher ratio. Auditors do not get class credit, but all the knowledge they accumulate is theirs to keep.

Auditors must submit an application to Schreiner. The application fee is $25 (nonrefundable) and courses are $100 per credit hour. To apply to Schreiner as an auditor, go to the University website at and look under the Non-Degree Admission at the bottom of the page. The deadline for applying to audit fall 2011 classes is Aug. 22, 2011.
