Courses – Spring 2021

The principal activity of QUEST is the selection, organization and teaching of a wide variety of courses. 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.

The fall and spring terms consists of 14 weeks of classes. In general, classes meet every-other week and have seven sessions. Classes that meet the first week, and then the 3rd, 5th, etc., are designated A-Week classes, and those that meet on the alternate weeks are B-Week classes. The latest schedule for all classes is shown below. Click on any course title and see a description.

To explore the richness of subject matter covered by our classes, subjects are sorted into the five categories listed below. Click on a category to see the courses it contains.

  1. Contemporary Issues
  2. Visual and Performing Arts
  3. Literature
  4. History
  5. Science and Philosophy

We also send a weekly email to all members containing the list of courses to be given that week with up-to-date information on topics to be covered. See the latest Next Week at Quest.

There is also a Quest Catalog published each term.
