Course Proposal Form - Belfast Senior College

Would you like to offer a course at the Senior College? Please fill out this form and submit it. We highly recommend  that you read the Instructors Guide, or contact the chair of the Curriculum Committee via email at if you have questions.

If you would like to offer an online class, please use this other form.

Course Proposal Form for In-person course
Please note that required text(s) and course materials are purchased by each student, not Senior College. If you require a text, list the author, title, and ISBN if a specific edition is required. If you require course materials (e.g., art supplies) provide a list of those and stipulate whether you will supply the materials and the students will purchase them from you, or whether students must secure them on their own. Please include an estimated price for any purchase the student must make, or an exact amount if they are purchasing from you.
Usually only for art, language and small group discussion classes. If you do set a limit, the maximum you can allow would be appreciated.
For use in the course catalog, please give us a sketch or summary of your educational background and personal experience that suggest why you are qualified to be able to teach this course or are particularly interested in the topic.
Please indicate dates you prefer, starting with the most preferred date.

Fall, winter and spring Senior College courses are taught on Thursdays. The fall semester begins on the third Thursday in September, winter session on the third Thursday in January, and spring session on the third or fourth Thursday of March. Summer courses are all one-day seminars or workshops (9:30 - 3:00). One-day classes are also offered throughout the year. These may take place on any weekday. If offering a one-day class, please indicate in your proposal how long you would like the lunch break to be (anywhere from 1/2 hour to 1-1/2 hour).

Photocopying, if needed, will be paid for by Senior College. You are strongly encouraged, however, to email course handouts to your students. In cases where that will not work please indicate your planned/estimated copying.

Please make every effort to avail yourself of the technology training offered, as we may need to pay extra if the tech supporter has to come in before or during your class. Please come in 30 minutes prior to the start of class to set up any equipment you might be using to assure your class runs smoothly. For additional questions about equipment provided by the Hutchinson Center you may contact UMaine Hutchinson Center Technology Coordinator Sam Overlock at 338-8032;
