Schreiner encourages folks 55 and older to audit classes

“Learn as if you were going to live forever,” said Mahatma Ghandi, a principle that Schreiner University strongly embraces. The school will offer 16 courses in the 2008 fall term that are open for Hill Country residents 55 years old and older to audit.

There is a $25 registration fee per semester and a fee of $25 per semester hour. For most courses, this will be $75. Classes are open first to regularly enrolled Schreiner students, then to auditors on a space-available basis. Class size is restricted to maintain Schreiner’s 13:1 student-teacher ratio. Auditors will receive a certificate of completion from the instructor.

The classes available for the 2008 fall term are Introduction to Clay (art), Scientific Terminology (biology), Introduction to Journalism, World Literature, Mythology, Introduction to Sport Management, French, History of Mexico, Modern Asia, Texas Music, Introduction to International Relations, Judicial Process, Middle East, Environmental Psychology, Health Psychology and Christian Theology.

To register as an auditor, and for more information about the program, go to and look under the Non-Degree Admission at the bottom of the page, or call admissions at (830) 792-7217.
