Age of the Pharaohs: A Whirlwind History of Ancient Egypt

Spanning more than 3,000 years, Ancient Egypt is one of the greatest civilizations the world has known. Join us for a whirlwind journey – from the time before the pyramids through the birth of language and religious thought, the Valley of the Kings and Ramses’ triumphs. This course will take you on a rich and engaging adventure exploring the great rulers, events and tremendous feats of art and architecture that characterized this magnificent era.

A Deep Dive into the World of Investigative Journalism

A functioning democracy in which governments are held to account is essential for communities to thrive and prosper. Sadly, if you believe the pollsters, educators and pundits, our democracy is in trouble, straining under the crushing weight of polarization, distrust and disengagement.  The survival of investigative journalism is at stake.
This series of lectures will walk you through eight topics that delve into the evolution of investigative journalism, its successes, challenges and the role it continues to play in our lives.
