Kepler College provides a liberal arts education through the lens of astrology

Kepler College of Astrological Arts and Sciences was founded to provide scholarly education and academic degrees in the field of astrological studies. It is the only college in the western hemisphere authorized to issue BA and AA degrees in Astrological Studies. The entire curriculum is based on astrology. Kepler offers a Distance Learning with Symposia Program. Each academic term is eleven weeks in duration. . . ten of which are presented on-line. Students complete reading, writing and research assignments under the e-mail guidance of the faculty.

The Value to Students

  • Kepler College graduates will make valuable contributions to other professions, businesses and service industries.
  • Kepler College will provide for the return to academia awareness of astrology's historical role in the development of science and culture, from its nearly censored or revisionist status in libraries and the curricula of America's educational institutions.

Kepler College is now authorized to offer a Master of Arts degree in Eastern and Western Traditions, in addition to the Associate of Arts in The History and Symbology of Astrology and the Bachelor of Arts in three major areas: Astrological Arts and Sciences, World History and Ancient and Medieval Culture.

DISTANCE LEARNING PROGRAMS

Kepler College uses one of the most innovative on-line formats: the mixed on-line and seminar format. Each term consists of ten weeks of on-line instruction, complete with reading assignments, exercises, papers, and faculty summaries to help you to understand the priority points of the material.

Then, in the fifth week of each term, the classes reconvene for a six-day symposium, which serves to both solidify the material already covered, and highlight the material for the rest of the term.

Students get an opportunity to get to know each other, and class identity is forged.

The Associate of Arts (AA) program features fewer symposia; but the Kepler faculty is so committed to the results of the symposia that they were unwilling to dispense with them entirely. So the AA students will have annual symposia.

Not everyone is prepared for on-line instruction. It requires self-discipline more than anything else. There are additional resources on this site to help you to decide if you are likely to succeed within this format.

KEPLER COLLEGE BA PROGRAM

Kepler College has been authorized by the Washington State Higher Education Coordinating Board to issue Bachelor of Arts degrees in Astrological Studies. The entire degree program takes four years to complete (each year consists of three 15-credit terms). As students earn their BA, they will take a journey that begins in the ancient past, exploring the history, uses, philosophy and practice of astrology from ancient times to modern day to see how astrology influenced the development of modern civilization. Students will learn about the controversies and arguments that surround the field, discover their own answers and may even elect to take part in current astrological research studies. In their third and fourth year, students will be expected to select a particular field of study in which to concentrate their studies and which will be the focus of their final project. Below is a brief overview of the four-year program.

YEAR ONE: The first year of the Kepler experience will take you back in time to explore how astrology developed from ancient times and was an integral part of the development of civilization through to the modern period. You will explore how astrology was used throughout the various stages of history; how the philosophies and myths of each era and civilization influenced the way astrology was perceived and how astrology changed through time and reflected each culture's way of thinking.

YEAR TWO: The second year of the Kepler program explores how astrology is used and practiced in modern times. You will examine how modern thinking and modern myths shape society's current beliefs about astrology. You will explore the various modern traditions, schools of interpretation and mathematical systems of chart construction along with a look at the philosophical, physical and metaphysical rationale behind the techniques.

The second year program surveys various methods of natal interpretation, transits, progressions, mundane, horary, electional, financial, synastric, person-centered and medical systems of astrology. You will learn how modern astrological interpretive techniques identify specific life experiences, psychological behaviors, spiritual and philosophical beliefs and you will learn to integrate this information into a comprehensive interpretation of a horoscope. Western and Eastern approaches to astrology will be discussed.

NOTE: Students with minimal or no astrological background may want to begin their Kepler journey by taking this year in astrological techniques and practice first. If you are interested in this option, please contact the Kepler registrar at registrar@kepler.edu or information desk info@kepler.edu to see if this is the right choice for you.

YEAR THREE AND FOUR: In the third and fourth year, you will be asked to select a specific track of study to develop an in-depth knowledge and a broad-based level of expertise. In these years, you will also have the option of taking a part-time schedule as individual classes are five credits each. Nine 5-credit courses comprise each track of study. During many of the Symposium activities, individual tracks will be integrated into a common lecture or program.

Individual tracks include: (1) Astrology, Psychology and the Counselling Arts; (2) Astrology and the Health Sciences; (3) Vedic Traditions and Practices; (4) Astrology, Astronomy and the Computer Sciences; (5) Astrology and the Social Sciences; (6) Astrology and the New Sciences; and (7) Modern Theory and Philosophy of Astrology.

Not all tracks will be available in the beginning years and some tracks will only be available every other year. Students will also be expected to take two required classes to help them to evaluate both quantitative and qualitative writing: (1) statistics; and (2) astrology in literature.
