Each year, Columbia’s community includes more than 700 people who take courses and attend special events offered on campus and in other locations worldwide through the Center for Lifelong Learning.
For church professionals and lay people, Columbia’s Center for Lifelong Learning provides non-degree courses and events—opportunities to learn with and from others for faithful discipleship. Led by top-notch seminary faculty, our offerings are biblically and theologically grounded, with a practical focus to help participants identify and address specific, real-life needs.
At the same time, we see lifelong learning as recreation—time to step out of life’s busy routines and experience renewal of mind, spirit, body, and emotion. We hope you will browse through our website to find out more about opportunities that are available for you. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us!
