What's in an age? Bruin senior scholars show learning is positive and possible, even later in life.

Advancing its mission of "living better longer," the UCLA Center on Aging offers the Senior Scholars Program – which allows people ages fifty and over to audit classes for a nominal fee ($150/one course or $250/two courses per quarter). Students reveal how the personal, professional and social benefits of an inter-generational education transcend age. Dr. Gary Small, Director of the UCLA Center on Aging, also comments on what the program reveals about brain development.
