Curriculum

“I really appreciate hearing the talented UCF faculty members speak from the varied disciplines here on campus. Lectures have been thought-provoking and have introduced me to some very novel ideas. I realized for the first time that a group of students playing tubas is a musical treat!”

LIFE at UCF’s Curriculum Committee plans approximately 28 weeks of LIFE lectures during the Fall and Spring Semesters and approximately 10 LIFE lectures during the Summer.

Fall/Spring classes are held in the Student Union on Tuesdays, beginning at 9 a.m. Lectures (two each session) on an infinite variety of topics are 45 minutes long with a 15-minute question-and-answer period. After each class session, online evaluations are sent to each LIFE member seeking feedback to assist with future programming. UCF faculty comprise over 50% of our speakers.

Summer programs are held at UCF on the UCF College of Medicine campus in Lake Nona and in the Psychology Auditorium on the UCF campus. The programs are held on Fridays at 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. respectively.
