Westminster/Wesleyan Lifelong Learning Institute
Continue the Adventure of Learning at Westminster/Wesleyan Lifelong Learning Institute
Through a unique partnership with Virginia Wesleyan University, those living at Westminster-Canterbury on Chesapeake Bay can take non-credit courses in art, history, political science, psychology, religion, popular culture, and other subjects. Taught by Virginia Wesleyan faculty, the courses are offered at no cost to Westminster-Canterbury members on site, as well as on the Virginia Wesleyan campus. Those living at Westminster-Canterbury also receive free admission to the University’s facilities, plays, concerts, lectures, and athletic events (post-season NCAA tournament play requires admission).
Programming for the initiative—a component of Virginia Wesleyan’s University College—is coordinated by Dr. Ben Fraser, the newly appointed Westminster-Canterbury Fellow for Religious Studies and Lifelong Learning. Several courses will be taught during each of two regular semesters, and roughly half will be on faith-related topics.
The Westminster/Wesleyan Lifelong Learning Institute is funded through Westminster-Canterbury and administered and supported through the Center for the Study of Religious Freedom at Virginia Wesleyan University.
