Continuing Education • College Classics • Courses


CLOGGING - A healthy low impact aerobic workout combined with beginning/
intermediate clogging routines. Some type of dance background is helpful but not
necessary. Tap/clogging shoes make the class fun, but are not required.

HISTORY OF CHRISTIANITY - Christianity is the largest and most global religious
tradition in history. For nearly 2,000 years, the Christian faith has remained at or near
the center of Western moral debate and conceptions of human identity, just action, and
ultimate meaning. There are 36 ½ hour DVD lectures, given by Professor Luke Timothy
Johnson from Emory University’s Candler School of Theology.

“I’VE A SMILE ON MY FACE” - The Broadway Musical - Many Broadway musicals
are decidedly fun and optimistic, such as “Top Hat,” “Anchors Aweigh,” “Singin’ in the
Rain,” “Guys and Dolls.” “Thoroughly Modern Millie, and “The Producers.” More serious
masterpieces include “A Star is Born,” “Phantom of the Opera,” and “Les Miserables.”
These and many others will be studied through excerpts, documentaries, books, and
websites. Representative musicals from England, France, India, and other countries will
also be explored.

POLITICAL GEOGRAPHY - Students choose the countries that they would like to study
and learn about the culture, history, geography and politics.

THE CATHEDRAL - A review of the development of the style of the Cathedral from
the Romanesque to the Gothic. The DVD presentations will be made of several world
renowned Gothic style Cathedrals. The course will be given in twenty-four 30-minute
presentations during the eight-week fall semester.

TONING WITH TAP DANCE - A healthy low impact aerobic workout combined with
beginning/intermediate tap dance routines. Some tap dance background is helpful. Tap
shoes required.

U.S. PRESIDENTS - U.S. Presidents since Truman (to wherever we get).
