Curriculum

CCR employs a we-run-it-ourselves way of doing things. Members share responsibility in curriculum planning, subject selection, and class presentations.

Each semester’s curriculum consists of whatever subjects the members choose; it changes from semester to semester. The subjects cover a wide variety of topics. 

Fall 2014 semester list:

  • The History and Culture of Russia: What Made Russia What It Is Today
  • A Dustin Hoffman Film Series: Viewing and Discussing His Performances
  • Applied Ethics: How to Approach Everyday Ethical Issues
  • Short Stories: Reading and Class Discussion of Selected Literary Pieces
  • Important Presidential Events: Exploring Aspects of Various Administrations
  • She Wolves: England’s Early Queens
  • Radio Plays: Class Readings from Old Radio Shows
  • World War I: Events and Personalities of the Era
  • “From the New York Times”: Discussing Feature Pieces, Not Front Page News
  • Comedians: Personalities, Acts, and Shows

“Potpourri topics” (one class session each) and guest speakers will be included in the program, as well.
