LIRA operates on a two-semester plan during the spring and fall. A selection of study groups that usually meet for two hours, mornings or afternoons, are offered. Generally the semesters run eight weeks. Members may participate in as many courses as desired. Trips, outings to museums, concerts, plays and sites of interest are common features of study groups. In the winter and summer between semesters, intersession programs are offered on Wednesdays only. A different topic is explored each week.
NOTE: If UMass Lowell is canceled because of weather, we will not be having classes that day. Other cancellations will be done by email or phone.
