College at 60

The College at 60, a nationally recognized program, serves as a bridge back into the classroom for persons over 60 interested in learning among a community of peers in a relaxed, intellectual environment.

College at 60 studies begin in small liberal arts seminars taught by Fordham University faculty members, many of whom also teach at Fordham's undergraduate and graduate schools of arts and sciences. These seminars cover a variety of topics, such as creative writing, 20th-century art, American presidents, the music of Mozart, the novels of Henry James, Freudian psychology, and Plato's philosophy.

The program welcomes adults from many walks of life. Some are recently retired or work part-time. Others left college early on to marry and raise a family. What they all have in common is a strong desire to learn. Many of them will tell you the best part of the College at 60 - it offers students the option to take classes at leisure and become fully engaged in a welcoming, academic community.
