Winter 2014 Evening Classes
Studying the principles of liberty may be among the nobler goals for kicking off the new year. An online evening class may be the perfect fit. Because these classes begin the third week in January, they providing ample time to get a jump start on the reading. Held live and online, students may attend from wherever they live. Classes run until May 9th.
Monday, January 6, is the registration deadline.
Our new online platform has been updated with fresh enhancements in 2014 to enrich the online experience. In addition to the ability to see your peers face to face, the instructor's screen can now be shared as a whiteboard simultaneously. This includes the ability to highlight points of emphasis on the fly and even share video with the class while discussing the finer points -- all more seamlessly than ever. Verbal discussion is now fluid as well, just like being in a physical room, and the chat feature remains an option as desired.
New Faculty Spotlight
We're excited to introduce our newest evening instructor, Dr. Bryan Benson, who is teaching our Political Philosophy courses. He just completed his first semester teaching at GWU and with strong positive reviews from students.
ST2310 Political Philosophy I: Classical & Medieval (3 credits)
This course investigates the principles found in the key political writings of the early great philosophers up through the Middle Ages. These establish the foundation for the European and Scottish Enlightenments and the ideas that culminated in the U.S. Constitution. Writings include those of Plato, Aristotle, Polybius, Cicero, Augustine and Thomas Aquinas.
Begins January 15 - ends May 7. Wednesdays from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. Taught jointly by Dr. Bryan Benson and Dr. Jennifer Jensen.
LT2310 English Literature (3 credits)
A number of seminal classics laid the foundation for English society, even playing key roles in shaping 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 also its fruits up through the late 19th century.
Begins January 21 - ends May 13. Every other Tuesday from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. Taught by Audrey Rindlisbacher.
