The pre-eminent expression of lifelong learning in the United States, Chautauqua Institution comes alive each summer with a unique mix of fine and performing arts, lectures, interfaith worship and programs, and recreational activities. Over the course of nine weeks, more than 100,000 people visit Chautauqua and participate in programs, classes and community events for all ages — all within the beautiful setting of a historic lakeside village. As a community, we celebrate, encourage and study the arts and treat them as integral to all of learning, and we convene the critical conversations of the day to advance understanding through civil dialogue.
The Special Studies registration Clerks provide clerical and customer service support for registration of youth and adult participants for the Special Studies program. Youth and adults register in person at the Special Studies office at Hulquist Center, by phone or on-line through Chautauqua Institution's ticketing system.
