  Short Courses  
Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UWM offers members the opportunity to sign up for Short Courses. These are two to six-week noncredit sessions on various topics such as the arts, literature, ethics, science, politics, religion and history. Courses are taught by UWM faculty and other experts and professionals in the community. Courses are offered in the fall, spring and summer. Our programs are designed for people from all walks of life and educational levels. The only admission requirement is a desire to learn.

Members enjoy free parking in the attached garage for Short Courses that are held downtown at the UWM School of Continuing Education.
