Timely Topics: On Campus and Online

Arguably, the most urgent issues surrounding freedom today are religious liberty and the family.  Evening classes this fall semester take on these topics directly.  With online students videoconferencing into classes on campus, students may attend from wherever they live.  A Continuing Education option for no credit is also available for the general public and non-traditional students such as busy parents, policy makers, professionals, Senior Citizens and advanced youth.

Improved Audio and Video

Our new online platform has been updated with fresh enhancements to enrich the combined online and on-campus experience.  Online students join campus classes directly on a large screen -- with both groups mutually seeing the full classroom and their online peers, including shared video and other presentations. Everyone participates face to face more seamlessly than ever. Verbal discussion is fluid, just like being together in the physical room.

 

LT 2520 Literary Agents of English History and Culture


Was there something about British culture that helped foster the birth of modern liberty as we know it? A number of seminal classics both shaped and perpetuated English society, sometimes playing important roles in the culture of liberty that set England apart from mainland Europe. This course examines a select handful of such works that delve into the heart of the great human struggles of moral agency, virtue, justice, mercy, power, humility and wisdom - a literary snapshot of English culture and its fruits up through the late 19th century. 

  • Chaucer, The Canterbury Tales (selections)
  • Shakespeare, Hamlet
  • Milton, Paradise Lost (selections)
  • Swift, Gulliver's Travels
  • Austen, Pride and Prejudice
  • Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities
  • Eliot, Middlemarch
  • Doyle, Selected short stories
  • Wells, Selected short story
  • LT2520 Reading Packet
  • Asimov, Asimov's Guide to Shakespeare (reference)

 

Begins January 12 - ends May 3.  Meets every other Tuesday from 5:30pm to 8:30pm, MST. Taught by Julie Earley.
