Schreiner offers spring classes for senior auditors

Psychologist Erich Fromm once asked, “Why should society feel responsible only for the education of children, and not for the education of all adults of every age?” Schreiner University recognizes no age limit on learning and each semester offers local residents 55 years old or older the opportunity to audit a wide range of college-level classes.

Classes in areas such as music, American and British literature, children’s and young adult literature, history, political science, the legislative process and science and religion will be available for the spring 2012 semester.

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 14:1 student-teacher ratio. Auditors do not get class credit.

The application fee is $25 (nonrefundable) and courses are $100 per credit hour. To apply to audit Schreiner classes, go to and look under Non-Degree Admission at the bottom of the page, or call the Office of Admission at 830-792-7217. Those who plan to audit Schreiner courses must apply by Friday, Jan. 13, 2012.
