Curiosity Is Ageless

The Wesleyan Institute for Lifelong Learning (WILL) makes the expertise and enthusiasm of Wesleyan instructors and local experts available to the public through convenient short-term, affordable classes on specialized topics not offered elsewhere.

Study the psychology behind Hamlet, examine WWII and the repercussions that echo even now, or do a deep dive into the mystery of our own creation and the search for self-actualization in a tumultuous and disarrayed world.

Through small seminar-format classes and occasional field trips (as appropriate), WILL courses maximize the student experience and promote a collegial atmosphere of collaborative learning, all within a few short sessions that can easily be fit into a busy schedule. Inquisitive minds of all ages and backgrounds are welcome and encouraged to bring new perspectives to the discussion.
