Lifelong Learning at KU

Kutztown University now offers free courses for all alumni of the university.   Different classes will be offered each semester on a variety of topics and alumni are welcome to take one or both courses.

These classes are 100% online and will appear on your transcript; however, they may not be used toward a degree program at Kutztown University.   Classes are graded on a Pass/Not Pass basis.  These classes do not count toward any Act 48 credits.  

We are excited to welcome alumni back to Kutztown University for another semester of free online alumni courses!  We are pleased to offer the following two new courses:


Course: ALM 100 - 4110


Professor: Glenn W. Richardson Jr.


Course Description:  The course explores various forecasts of how advancing technology (including artificial intelligence) and global challenges (such as climate change and soaring economic inequality) will shape the future of work, democracy, and the environment. It addresses issues such as the rise of robots, the impact of Al on work and society, advances in genetics and biotechnology and the political, economic and environmental implications of the conjunction of technological advances and socio-political challenges and change.


Course: ALM 100 - 5010

Professor: To be announced


Course Description:  This course will provide an overview of women's creative achievements, experiences and status in the visual arts. The focus of this course is on gender; however, issues relating to the intersections of gender with race, class, national origin, ethnicity, age, and sexual orientation will also be discussed. As well, the course will explore the portrayal of women and the way in which cultural definitions of gender shape women's aesthetic expression.
