The Radcliffe Seminars were inaugurated in 1950 with initial funding from the Carnegie Corporation to provide non-credit liberal arts courses taught mainly by Harvard professors to women in mid-life. Currently, courses are offered in five areas: liberal arts, landscape design, management studies, non-credit enrichment courses, and study tours.
