Wonderlust is about expanding knowledge. We are a member-run organization dedicated to bringing stimulating courses to those who want to continue learning throughout their lives.

We offer non-credit classes, book clubs, writing workshops and a variety of other activities for the intellectually curious who want to study and learn in a socially dynamic setting. There are no “requirements”. no grades. no papers. Simply learning more about topics of interest to you.



Benefits of Membership
Membership is $35 per person annually and includes:

• Reduced tuition for full length courses
• Free "Side Trip" offerings (members are encouraged to bring one guest to one Side Trip)
• Invitations to Wonderlust social events

Wonderlust Offerings
We offer two types of courses. Full-length courses meet for two hours every week for typically 4-6 weeks.
Side Trip short courses meet only once and may be anything from a lecture to an all-day field trip. During each semester, we also offer a variety of other learning opportunities such as writing workshops, opera club, and book discussion groups.

Our courses are usually lecture format but with plenty of time for questions and discussion. Book groups and writing workshops have a leader but are primarily member interactive discussions.

If you cancel before a course starts, you may apply the tuition fee as a credit toward a future course. If you want a refund, there is a $25 processing fee. There will be no refunds / credits
after the course begins. Social Security numbers are required in order to process refunds by check.

As we wind up our very successful Spring semester there are a few noteworthy events still to come.  There are still some spaces left for Dr. Renee A. Reijo Pera’s talk on Thursday May 5th.  Dr. Pera is renowned for her biotechnology research and is MSU’s Vice President for Research.   Check your emails from MSU to learn more about her talk and for registration information.  The final Friday Forum for the semester will feature Bozeman District Lisa Stoeffler speaking about the opportunities and challenges facing the Gallatin National Forest.  Members can also still take part on our book clubs and opera offerings.

If you click on "calendar" in the menu bar you'll see that we start our Fall 2015 events with a reception at the Country Bookshelf on September 7th.  Most courses will start shortly after that kick-off.

See you in the Fall.  In the meantime I hope you enjoy our Big Sky summer!
