Simpson University for Seniors

REDDING, Calif. - Simpson University for Seniors is offering two courses in September for adults of any age.

The non-credit, no-homework classes, each consisting of ten one-hour classes in a given month, are taught on Simpson’s campus by university professors and professionals in their field of expertise.

Classes meet from 10 to 11:40 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

The following courses are offered:

What is Islam? This class will take a desert caravan through the history and concepts of Islam. It will equip students to step from fear and uncertainty regarding Muslims to understanding and insight. Presenter: Dawn Bulchandani.

The Bible as Literature. This class explores the different types of literature found in the Bible (e.g., narrative, poetry, parable, proverb). Understanding the rules for each of these literary genres helps the reader interpret the meaning the author sought to convey. Presenter: Dr. Glenn Schaefer.

Two courses are offered each month through April. The cost is $95 per person, per course, or $145 for couples registering for the same course. Register online with a credit card at
