About the Minicourses

The program of Drew University Minicourses at the Madison Public Library began with the Fall Term in 1992. To date these noncredit courses have drawn thousands students from over 60 communities throughout northern New Jersey. Student response has been enthusiastic, with many people returning for classes each term. 

The courses are intended to be suitable for the general public without any prerequisites. However they are taught at a level consistent with Drew University's outstanding academic reputation. The faculty members are chosen both for their scholarship and for their ability as lecturers. All of our teachers this term have given minicourses before and are returning at popular request.

There are no examinations, grades, or required reading, but reading lists are made available for those who wish to further broaden their knowledge. Lectures are recorded for the use of those who find it necessary to miss a class. The classroom is accessible to all.

The tuition for one minicourse is $95. Additional courses (for one individual) are $65 each. 

Frequently courses are fully subscribed.
 For that reason we recommend early registration.
