Civil War & Military History Institutes

The Civil War Institute is a personal enrichment program that brings courses in Civil War History to the Delaware Valley in a non-stress, adult environment at Manor College. All of the courses in the program are taught by instructors who are members of the DelVal CWRT.

Classes may be taken individually or as part of a certificate program. Completion of four core courses (each 4 weeks/8 hours), plus any 24 hours of electives are required to receive the certificate.

For those who haven't been at the College for a while, it is worth noting that the Academic Building, also known as the Mother of Perpetual Help Building, is equipped with an elevator. The classrooms are air-conditioned, and the old student desks have been replaced with more comfortable adult chairs, desks and tables. There is also a ramp from the parking lot to the Academic Building.

In addition to classes in our Civil War Institute at Manor College, we are now offering classes in the Military History Institute. These classes cover all periods of history, both American and World History, from ancient to modern times.

As students of the Civil War we have long regretted that we will never have the opportunity to hear first-hand accounts of their experiences. Now, we are in a similar era where each day we lose more and more of the veterans of the "Greatest Generation". We feel it is our duty and our privilege to keep alive their deeds and their memories through our Military History Institute. We would love to have your support. And bring along a friend or colleague!

Manor College is located at 700 Fox Chase Road in Jenkintown, PA. Call (215) 884-2218 to register or for an application for the certificate program, or online
