Road Scholar

Road Scholar brings adults from across the nation together for a week of lectures and Las Vegas-related activities.

UNLV Featured Programs:

Crime Scene Forensics

(Road Scholar program #12156)
Distinguish the realities of crime scene investigation from the dramatizations in popular culture. Spend the week with criminal justice professionals, forensic pathologists, and scientists and see how old-fashioned detective work combines with cutting-edge technology to solve crimes.

That’s Entertainment, Las Vegas Style!

(Road Scholar program #1662)
Get a true behind-the-scenes look at Las Vegas, the “Entertainment Capital of the World.” Learn how the entertainment industry came to be in Las Vegas and have a showgirl take you backstage before enjoying two exciting evening performances, including a Cirque du Soleil production. Spend time visiting local treasures, including Red Rock Canyon, Mob Museum, and Neon Museum. This is a very active program and will keep you on-the-go each day.

Participants must be able to climb stairs and walk on uneven surfaces from three blocks up to two miles.


Your registration fee includes all activities, hotel accommodations, and some meals. If you live in Las Vegas and don't need accommodations, you will receive a discount.
