Thank You for Your Interest in Teaching
UMA Senior College is dedicated to the concept of lifelong learning. Our classes and lectures are made possible by a committed “faculty of peers” who willingly donate their time and energy. We endeavor to create a curriculum that piques the interest of Senior College members and matches the standards of our sponsor, UMA. We enjoy school, and our goal is to ensure that you enjoy teaching here. To that end, our classroom preparation help now includes optional personalized Zoom training and practice sessions.
