What do you like most about Sarasota? If it is the art and
music, the out-of-doors, or our great people and events, then PSA is the right place for
you. We are a lifelong learning organization passionate about all these things and more.
Stan Nikkel, Dean of Faculty, hunts for the learned people in our
community who can teach. They are retired and non-retired professors in every field but
also our orchestra players and jazz musicians, our circus artists, art critics, scientists
and nature lovers.
Stan challenges this diverse group of experts to put together classes
—four, six and eight weeks long, running through fall, winter, and spring terms—
to instruct, entertain and exercise the brains of people like you who seek intellectual
challenge, fun, and a chance to interact with other lifelong learners of Sarasota.
Taking classes at PSA is not only about gathering facts but also about
delving into ideas and thinking anew about the arts, government, Latin America, medicine,
nanotechnology, science, sports, film, history, nature, economics, and even spirituality
or the secrets of chocolate. Lifelong learning is an adventure and, with PSA, the adventure
is right at your doorstep with classes at five locations in Sarasota and Manatee County.
You are invited to browse our course catalog
and read our story. You are also invited to attend the
free lectures, given by our faculty members in Sarasota
this November. And, you can always contact one of us if you
have questions. We would love you to join us on the lifelong quest of learning.
