UNT's Emeritus College, launched last year to offer non-credit classes designed for adults 50 and older, is offering a new round of classes for the 2010-11 school year to engage people in lifelong learning. Enrollment for fall 2010 classes began July 20 and classes start Sept. 2.
There are 43 classes offered this fall. Topics range from fine arts, current affairs, history, social sciences, language, literature, religion and spirituality. The Emeritus College also will offer classes on health and well being.
Emeritus College classes are taught by UNT emeritus and active faculty as well as area professionals. Classes are held on the UNT campus during weekdays. The Center for Achievement and Lifelong Learning oversees the college.
Classes for fall 2010 include:
- Historical Overview of the U.S. Congress and Supreme Court

Enrolling in Emeritus College classes requires an annual $95 membership fee that allows members to take as many classes as they want from September through May. The fee also includes free parking, a member newsletter and access to social events throughout the year. Guests of members are allowed to attend for a per-class fee.
Members select their own schedules and choose from a variety of learning options and topics. Some classes are one-time lectures (60 to 90 minutes), while more in-depth study is available through seminars (60 to 90 minutes for two weeks). All classes include time for group discussion.
