The Office of Continuing Education at the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley is now accepting registrations for two special interest series that are being offered at the Menasha campus.

“Exploring Astronomy Series” begins October 4 and runs for three weeks.  This series is designed especially for adults who want to learn more about the universe that surrounds them.  This non-mathematical class is appropriate for all levels of ability and will spend time both inside and outside the campus’ Barlow Planetarium. 

The first session on October 4 is titled, “Learning the Night Sky.” Session two, “Observing the Heavens,” is scheduled for October 11; the final session is set for October 18, and focuses on, “The Heavens in Motion”.  Participants may attend all three sessions of the series for $59, or enroll for individual sessions at $23 per session.

“Music in Film” begins with a brief introduction to the theory and technique of film music.  Participants will watch short film clips from three landmark films while studying their equally landmark musical scores. Films and film scores being reviewed are, “To Kill a Mockingbird,” “Out of Africa,” and “The Dead.” 

Beginning Monday, September 24, “Music in Film” meets from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.   on four Mondays, including October 8, October 22 and November 5. The course fee is $43.00.

Registrations for “Exploring Astronomy Series” and “Music in Film” are taken online, by mail, phone, or in person.
