The Odyssey Project is accepting applications for adults ages 18 and older to begin classes in writing and critical thinking, art history, literature, philosophy and U.S. History. 

The free program, a part of the Illinois Humanities Council, gives adults living on low-incomes the opportunity to earn up to six hours of college credit from Bard College. Classes are taught by faculty from the University of Chicago, the Art Institute of Chicago and DePaul University.

No diploma or G.E.D. required. Applications are due by Friday, August 15 and classes are set to begin by mid-September.
