Adult education, distinct from child education, is a practice in which adults engage in systematic and sustained self-educating activities in order to gain new forms of knowledge, skills, attitudes, or values. It can mean any form of learning adults engage in beyond traditional schooling, encompassing basic literacy to personal fulfillment as a lifelong learner.
Adult Religion Classes are selected from the LDS Institutes of Religion Approved Course list and offered to members of the church and their friends in local LDS meetinghouses or other public locations. BYU Adult Religion Classes use approved LDS Institute Curriculum to provide enrichment to gospel study.
