Lifelong Discovery


“Every citizen must have education, broad and continuous. Education must continue throughout life.”
Louis D. Brandeis

Welcome to BNC's expanded Learning Opportunities, now representing a broad spectrum of exciting topics and new learning modules—more opportunities for members to participate in the highly acclaimed program that has become synonymous with Brandeis University. 

Brandeis Study with the Best

Brandeis faculty continue to provide stimulating learning opportunities through their renowned study guides (formerly syllabi and brieflets). BNC's trademark study guides consist of scholarly information on a particular topic, insightful questions for discussion, a faculty biography and a recommended bibliography for further study. > Learn more.

The Brandeis Encore Series

The Encore Series presents video programming that showcases faculty and celebrated guest speakers featured at special on-campus events. The Brandeis Encore Series will make you feel as though you are attending lectures on campus with the Brandeis community. These programs include DVDs of the presentations and accompanying discussion questions prepared by Brandeis faculty. > Learn more.

'Deis Flicks

In collaboration with the National Center for Jewish Film on the Brandeis campus, BNC has assembled a lending library of DVDs. The 'Deis Flicks collection includes both the work of modern independent filmmakers and archival materials. Together they represent a visual record of the Jewish people in all of their vibrancy and diversity. > Learn more.

Brandeis Educational Snacks

This brand-new study guide genre is another way to bring the Brandeis educational experience and connection to BNC members nationwide. The simple preparation for this genre, which can be arranged as a one-time event or a continuous study group, is available completely online. The "main course" is an exciting and engaging discussion centered on various topics of interest, such as food and friendship. The "dessert" is additional readings and film recommendations for a satisfying and healthy time spent with friends. > Learn more.
