Campion College releases Western Civilisation short course online
Campion has launched a short introductory course on Western Civilisation that is open to everyone, regardless of age or location.
Released today, Introduction to Western Civilisation offers a broad overview of key texts and ideas from the past 3000 years, including Plato’s Republic, Dante’s Divine and Nietzsche’s The Gay Science.
The pre-recorded lecture series covers topics in the history, philosophy, theology and literature of Western Civilisation, derived from Campion’s Liberal Arts degree, and is designed to be taken at the student’s pace.
Lectures also look at crucial movements in Western European history, such as the rise of monasticism, the Reformation and the Enlightenment, while introducing subscribers to figures like Shakespeare, St Thomas Aquinas and René Descartes, as well as a focus on Jesus Christ as God and Man.
All 13 lectures feature Campion’s outstanding academics, delivered through Parousia Media on demand.
While intended for personal enrichment, Introduction to Western Civilisation can also be used as a bridging program for admission to Campion’s undergraduate degree.
The course content costs $299 and is available for 12 months from the date of payment. All students will receive a certificate of completion after submitting a short assessment within the 12-month access period.
