American History Since World War II

July 28-31, 2019 | Hillsdale, MI

Lifelong Learning Seminars provide a learning vacation unlike any other. Spend time with some of Hillsdale College's most distinguished professors, sharing insights, and joining in lively conversation. Enjoy a unique learning vacation with your children or grandchildren at this family seminar. Attend classes together, as well as special activities, including a treasure hunt and evening entertainment.

This family seminar—designed for junior high- and high school-age children and their parents or grandparents—will consider the Cold War, LBJ’s Great Society, the civil rights movement, Vietnam, the administrative state, post-1960s liberalism, and the Reagan revolution.
