Community Guide to Skidmore Resources
Lifelong Learning/Continuing Education
The Liberal Studies for Mature Adults Program each fall offers a series of weekly lectures over seven weeks to people age 55 and older from Saratoga, Warren, and Washington counties. Presented by Skidmore faculty, the lectures cover a wide range of issues in the humanities, arts, natural sciences, and social sciences, mixing the contemporary with the historical.
The Master of Arts in Liberal Studies program enables students anywhere in the world to immerse themselves in a graduate education without being uprooted from their jobs or homes. Students typically complete their coursework at a distance through individualized tutorials with Skidmore professors, in-class courses at universities near their homes, supervised internships, and/or study abroad. Graduates enter Ph.D. programs and professional schools, further their current careers, and start new ones.
Tang Museum Teacher Resources Program offers a variety of teacher training opportunities in addition to the museum's Educator's Guide, published annually. Continuing education and certification credits are available for teacher training in Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS). Tang staff members are available to give presentations at Arts in Education Teacher Development Days, to explain Tang programs, and to offer faculty tours of the exhibitions.
