Lifelong Learning

Welcome to BNC's expanded learning opportunities, now representing a broad spectrum of exciting topics and new learning modules. 

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.

Encore Series and New Student Forum

BNC members will love these two continuing-education opportunities with a distinctly Brandeis flavor. The Encore Series showcases faculty and celebrated guest speakers at special on-campus events. The New Student Forum provides incoming freshman the opportunity to discuss a common summer reading assignment with the book's author prior to the start of classes.


“Every citizen must have education — broad and continuous. This essential of citizenship is not met by an education which ends at the age of 14 — or even at 18 or 22. Education must continue throughout life.”
