AT JOHNS HOPKINS:
Hopkins' Odyssey Program Offers Nonprofit Courses, ranging from Hapsburgs to Frontiers of MedicineThe Odyssey Program, the Johns Hopkins University's non-credit liberal arts program for adults, begins its 19th academic season this fall with more than 60 courses.
Participants can choose from courses that will broaden their understanding of important current events in international relations, science and medicine, and of Baltimore's rich maritime past. They can attend a series of lectures and restaurant dinners that examine the culture and cuisine of Japan, Italy and France or go behind the scenes of the Baltimore Chamber Orchestra and attend a concert conducted by a finalist auditioning for the BCO's open position for music director. In a course that studies historic preservation in Maryland, they can learn how to recognize and date American architectural styles, how to research their own homes and be "old-house detectives."
This semester's highlights include:
Classes begin in October. For more information, call 410-516-4842 or visit odyssey.jhu.edu.
