Our University is a worldwide hub for discussion and debate on everything from "freaky science" to global food security, from our prestigious Beatty Memorial Lecture to our celebrated Trottier Symposium.

If you're looking for a series of fun and enlightening courses – without the homework and exams, of course – explore our "Mini" lectures in Medicine, Law, Business, Science, Music or Educational Psychology, and learn from some of McGill's top educators in an informal environment.

In addition, many McGill Science and Physics professors are available for public talks on a wide variety of subjects at schools and other venues.
