Campion College Australia is preparing to launch a short online course this week on Western Civilisation.

The pre-recorded lecture series will cover topics in the history, philosophy, theology and literature of Western Civilisation, derived from Campion’s top-rated Liberal Arts degree, and is designed to be taken at the student’s pace.

Introduction to Western Civilisation will delve into key texts and ideas from the past 3000 years, including Plato’s Republic, Shakespeare’s Richard III and Dante’s Divine Comedy.

Lectures will also cover crucial movements in Western European history, such as the rise of monasticism, the Reformation and the Enlightenment, while introducing subscribers to figures like St Thomas Aquinas, René Descartes and Friedrich Nietzsche.

While intended for personal enrichment, Introduction to Western Civilisation can also be used as a bridging program for admission to Campion’s undergraduate degree.

All lectures in this short course feature Campion’s outstanding academics, delivered through Parousia Media on demand.
