Fall 2021 Courses

Courses at Quest fall into five categories: Visual and Performing Arts, Contemporary Issues, History, Literature, Science and Philosophy. Click on the name of any course in the schedule below and you will be taken to that course page.



Quest classes run for both fall (September to mid- December) and spring (February to mid-May) terms, each 14 weeks, and there is an eight-week summer session that runs in June and July, with just one class offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays only from 10:30 a.m. until Noon.

In general, classes alternate weeks, so each course is approximately seven sessions (contingent upon holiday schedules). Classes that meet on the 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, 11th, and 13th weeks are designated A-Week classes. Those that meet on the alternate weeks are B-Week classes.
