If you are 50 or older and trying to understand what’s going on in the world (and city) we now live it, consider signing up for the “Political Science–Current Events” course that will be produced by the Santa Monica College Emeritus Program (SMC-Emeritus) in West Hollywood.
The course is an initiative of the city’s Aging in Place / Aging in Community program in partnership with the West Hollywood Community Housing Corporation (WHCHC) and will be offered free-of-charge to community members who are 50 and older as part of a goal to promote opportunities for lifelong learning.
An Emeritus Information Session will take place on Oct. 28 at 2 p.m. to introduce SMC-Emeritus to West Hollywood community members. The session will take place at the WHCHC’s Movietown Square Community Room, located at 7302 Santa Monica Blvd.
It will include a meet-and-greet with the Emeritus Associate Dean Scott Silverman and Political Science Professor Brandon Millan. Attendees will have opportunities to complete the SMC-Emeritus enrollment process and register early for the winter session, which will begin in January 2020 in the Movietown Square Community Room turned classroom.
“Political Science–Current Events” is aimed at increasing students’ understanding of local, national, and international current affairs. Students in the course consider the political, economic, and social movements that determine domestic and foreign policies in the United States and around the world. Instruction will be provided in English. Future course opportunities may be provided in additional languages, such as Russian. The SMC-Emeritus in West Hollywood.
