The very spring and root of honesty and virtue lie in good education. – Plutarch
Spring is coming and changes are coming with it! This upcoming quarter we are excited to announce a few changes and new additions to our curriculum.
First off, we will be offering two new undergraduate courses CUL 309 – Mysticism and Modernism in the Poetry of T.S. Eliot and CUL 452 – Sacred Music of the Medieval Ages this Spring quarter. We are pleased to welcome both Timothy Shaughnessy and Juan Hernandez to our undergraduate faculty. In our graduate program, we will now be offering an alternative to a final thesis. Students interested in pursuing a Master’s degree with us, but not interested in completing a thesis project, may take two additional courses for graduation. For more information on this, contact UPR’s Student Services Coordinator at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tuesday evenings in Los Angeles are now the time for great lectures and heated discussions, don’t miss professor Greg Salyer’s on-campus Tuesday night lecture series, Gods and Monsters. Our Second Saturday Speaker’s Platform will also be going on throughout the year with one great talk every month in the auditorium. If you’d rather check out our world-renowned wisdom library and immerse yourself in some of the most interesting books around, our library and bookstore will be open to the public each second Saturday as well. Coming up in March is Jonathan Young and Anne Bach’s all day workshop on The Symbolism of Fairytales in Adult Psychology. Jonathan is one of our dearest professors and an amazing storyteller who assisted mythologist Joseph Campbell at seminars and was the Founding Curator of the Joseph Campbell Archives and Library.
