Fall 2010 Course Offering

San Elijo College is happy to announce its first course offering. We will be offering a semester long course on the great works of ancient Greek literature. We will be reading Hesiod's Theogony and Works and Days, Homer's Illiad and Odyssey, as well as plays by Aeschlyus, Sophocles, Euripides, and Aristophanes.

The course is open to degree seeking students as well as anyone interested in these great books.

We will be meeting on Tuesday evenings from 5:30-8:30 p.m. beginning on August 31 through December 14.

Our location in the San Elijo Hills Town Center is to be announced. Please see our course schedule on the college website for the reading list and meeting dates.

Classical Christian Education Lectures Online

All of the videos from our past symposium and summer lectures are online. Our lectures feature: Dinesh D'Souza, John Mark Reynolds, and Peter Kreeft, as well as others. The lecture by Peter Kreeft from our December 2009 symposium is one of the finest statements of a Christian view of the liberal arts and classical education. If you weren't at the lecture and have a passion for classical liberal arts, check out Dr. Kreeft's lecture here.
