Spring classes run February-May and are taught by distinguished university faculty and local area professionals. For a flat fee of $75 you may take as many classes as your heart desires.

Here are just a few classes we are looking forward to in March!

Orchestral Incidental Music at the Movies

This class will show how 19th century classical orchestral style was alive and well in movies of the 20th century. Dr. Max Morley returns to give a lecture and audio visual presentation of orchestral incidental music in the movies from 1927 to the present. The class will feature brief discussions of 30 composers and 90 orchestral excerpts from 72 films. Dr. Morley retired from the School of Music at Stephen F. Austin State University in 2009. He holds the degrees, BM, MM and DMA from the University of North Texas.

Why do Wars Occur and What Can Be Done to Stop Them?

Join Dr. James Meernik, director of the Castleberry Peace Institute at UNT, as he explains what reasons make wars more likely and what things can be done to reduce the occurrence of war. The course will highlight what we know from work done at the Castleberry Peace Institutes. Dr. Meernik has been publishing on international relations for over 20 years and has books and over 60 articles that he has authored or co-authored.
