Lecture courses are taught by the high-caliber instructors and guest speakers for which UCLA Extension is world renowned. Our courses explore art, music, literature, history, science, languages, psychology, current events, and many other exciting fields. There are no tests, grades, or homework, although some courses include readings.
Discussion groups are for members who want to ask questions, offer answers and share their knowledge in the classroom. Established instructors act as facilitators to create an environment in which participants explore subjects in an atmosphere of intellectual stimulation, creative self-expression, and socializing without the expectation of tests or grades. Depending on the nature of the course, there could be a modest amount of preparation before class begins and you may be called upon for your insights – members should be ready to participate!
