Worcester Institute for Senior Education

We don’t offer degrees, but you can learn about them in our classes.

Assumption College is proud to sponsor the Worcester Institute for Senior Education (WISE), a lifelong learning institute open to older adults in Central Massachusetts who are interested in continuous learning. It is a member-run organization in which peer learning and active participation are key concepts. Members create their own educational programming and, through peer learning, share their experience and knowledge on topics of interest to them. 


Some of our certificate programs can be completed in less than 12 months!
