E400 Astronomy for Astrologers
Astronomy is the
study of the nature, motions and history of the Earth’s cosmic environment.
Astronomy is a highly developed science and encompasses many technical
subjects. In this course, Kepler E400, the emphasis is on subject matter
relevant to a general and non-technical understanding of astronomy. The course
is a unique introduction to astronomy presented at the 12th grade or first year
college level, and would benefit students of astrology or anyone seeking a
practical overview of the subject.
This is a self-motivated course that requires the student to set aside time
each week to study the material presented. Learning in this course depends on
taking the time to go over the assigned readings, listening to the lectures,
and doing the weekly assignments. The readings overlap with the lectures and
provide additional information. The assignments are based primarily on the
lectures which set the parameters of each week’s topic. In addition to the
lectures and assigned readings, assignments for the course include online
forums, multiple choice questions, and a short report on a relevant topic.
