The University of Arizona is rapidly ramping up Coronavirus mitigation efforts to keep our community as safe as possible. Accordingly, we are moving from in-person instruction to online instruction wherever possible. The Humanities Seminars Program has suspended our Spring 2020 courses while we assess the online options available.

Assuring the Future of the Humanities Seminar Program

Those who treasure the Humanities Seminars have the opportunity to make sure this premier University of Arizona adult education program can continue providing quality courses to residents of the Greater Tucson area for many years to come by making a gift or contributing to the HSP Endowment Fund.

One of the program's strengths has always been that the Humanities Seminars Program has been able to present outstanding classes on topics that would be of interest to 85 participants and classes that might appeal to 25.  In order to maintain this excellence and variety, there is a need to reach out to the community of lifelong learners for long-term support.
