Life Course Scholars Program 2017-2018
The Life Course Scholars Program is housed in the Urban Studies and Planning Program at UC San Diego. It provides an interdisciplinary, cross-generational, multi-site learning experience for UC San Diego undergraduates that will transform their understanding of aging, health, learning and research, as well as connect them more deeply to the “people and places” of surrounding San Diego communities. This unique program combines place-based, experiential, and traditional classroom-based learning methods both on and off campus.

Selected students will participate in several activities in Fall Quarter 2017 and will be required to enroll in USP 141A (Winter Quarter 2018) and USP 141B (Spring Quarter 2018). Each course is worth 6 units and must be taken for a letter grade. The class is scheduled to meet from 9:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. on Wednesdays in both the winter and spring quarters.

The program is co-taught by Dr. Leslie Lewis and Dr. Mirle Rabinowitz Bussell, faculty members in the Urban Studies and Planning Program.
