Education - Enrichment - Exploration

Explore the world of arts and humanities through a wide variety of undergraduate courses offered at Fairfield University. Members have the privilege of auditing one or two undergraduate courses each semester. These courses are available to auditors on a space-available basis during the day or evening.

Membership is open to the intellectually curious who may:

  • audit a wide range of university semester-long undergraduate courses
  • participate in broadly based monthly symposia offered by distinguished members of the Fairfield University faculty
  • attend special interest programs and lectures

*There are no papers to write and no exams to take


In addition, the Albert M. Loch Learning for a Lifetime Scholarship offers members the opportunity to contribute to the scholarship to support two deserving students (one student at the undergraduate level and one student at the graduate level) during the academic year.


During the spring and fall semesters, monthly symposia are also offered. Fairfield University faculty lead these discussions on a variety of topical subjects. Attendees also have the chance to get to know each other and exchange viewpoints among a highly diversified group of professionals.

Each semester Fairfield University publishes a catalogue with the courses on offer and the days and times the courses are offered. Please click here to view the spring 2016 schedule of courses.
