UO Insight Seminars are month-long college-level courses in art, literature, poetry, philosophy, history, architecture, archaeology, religion, and current events. They are for people eager to return to college level study for the sake of personal fulfillment.
Seminars are noncredit and ungraded. There are typically no written assignments but there is a good deal of challenging reading of both primary and secondary materials. Seminars are led by UO and guest faculty expert in the topics, who provide formal study guides and lead college-level discussions.
In addition to the month-long seminars, there are occasional one-day seminars. There is also a series of free public lectures presented before each course begins.
