Registration underway for Coastal Senior College Winter Classes

Coastal Senior College (CSC) challenges you to ward off those post-holiday blues by selecting a class from an array of regular and on-going gatherings. Classes begin in January and February and meet throughout the week. Visit CSC’s website at for individual start dates and complete course descriptions as well as directions to the various course locations in the Midcoast.

Classes are taught by both first-time and returning instructors and reflect a wide variety of interests. “Could Japan Have Won?” presented by new CSC instructor Charles Brockunier, examines Japanese, American and British strategies in World War II in the Pacific theater,  looking for ironies, missed opportunities, blunders and the "fickle finger of Fate." “The Puzzles of Jesus’ Birth and Childhood,” “Interactive Study of Transportation at Owls Head Transportation Museum,” and “Taking Your Family History Research to the Next Level” are a few more of the interesting array of classes.

The list continues with “Poetry: Windows and Mirrors,”  “Aristotle Meets Molecular Biology,” “Creating Your Family Cookbook,” “Maine’s Natural History,” “Bach and the Best of the Rest of the Baroque,” “Lunch with the Junior League,” “The Application of Strategic ‘Intelligence’ in the 21st Century ” and “The Story of You: Gathering The Story You Have Within You (Continued).” “Folk Architecture of the World,” presented by another first-time CSC instructor, Arnold J. Aho, will lead students in studying the relationships between natural and cultural contexts and their influences on traditional ("folk") building forms throughout the world .

Four on-going groups and a special two-day event free to CSC members complete the list. “Writers’ Group,” “CSC Coffee House,” “Watch and Talk,” and a new group “Challenge of Change,” are on-going, and a “Knox County History Outreach Event” about the Penobscot Marine Museum meets for two days in January in Thomaston.

Courses are $30 for members and the $25 membership fee entitles individuals to enroll in all statewide senior college courses as well as those offered by CSC through the end of the 2013 fiscal year. Scholarships are available to help defray the cost of CSC membership and classes by contacting Dawn Marie at University College at Rockland.

With a membership of over 300, CSC, dedicated to enriching lives through the joy of lifelong learning, is one of the state’s largest senior colleges. Register now by calling 596-6906 or 800-286-1594.
