The love of learning is part of what makes us deeply human, and it is a reflection of our yearning for something true. The Canterbury Seminars Program offers a series of engaging non-credit, adult education classes that address topics of particular interest for anyone interested especially in philosophical, historical, and theological subjects. The seminars are taught by expert scholars and teachers, but just as importantly, they give participants the opportunity to pursue new ideas and insights through robust conversation.
Seminar classes are held once a week for two hours, and they run for a six-week period each quarter (see current offerings for details). Space is limited, so if you see a course that interests you, register today!
Our inaugural season is named in honor of the Canterbury House’s longest-serving Chaplain, the Rev. Scott Jones. In honor of his service we are also offering a discounted price for all seminars this season: only $250!

All proceeds from the Canterbury Seminars support the mission of Canterbury House.
