Osher at William & Mary

The Osher Institute at W&M is a membership of people — mostly age 50+ — from a variety of backgrounds. We share a common interest in continuing learning experiences and intellectual stimulation. There are no tests or grades. Members participate purely for the joy of learning.

Have a look at our current semester catalog to learn more about our mission and view a sampling of our class offerings. You can still register for Fall 2023. Registration re-opened Monday, August 21 and runs through October 31.
