SFU Liberal Arts and Adults 55+ Program

The Liberal Arts and Adults 55+ Program, formerly the Seniors Program, which dates back to 1975, has evolved from small but robust beginnings to become a dynamic community outreach effort that facilitates the offering of more than a hundred courses and events a year. Weekend and evening courses are open to all adults, while daytime courses are reserved for Adults 55+. Courses cover a broad range of subject areas in the humanities, social sciences, sciences and arts. There are no entrance requirements, exams or required assignments. A certificate is available to adults 55+ who complete a minimum of 128 contact hours. Courses, which normally meet for six sessions, are delivered by experts in their field who offer challenging materials with real engagement. The Program also offers several free events on topics of general interest. Normally held on Saturdays, these events take place at both the downtown Vancouver campus and Surrey City Centre Library.
