Officials with the Tulane School of Continuing Studies' Mississippi Coast Campus have announced that the 2016 spring semester will start on Monday, January 11, and the upcoming semester offers new classes for people seeking personal enrichment or those seeking entertainment. The registration deadline for this semester is Friday, January 22.
Included in more than 40 classes offered this spring, Tulane's Mississippi Coast Campus is offering a Medieval Lives course and a class called the Gulf Coast Theater Experience. The two new classes are a result of student feedback and the faculty's commitment to meeting the educational needs and personal interests of the coastal community.
Robert Kearns will teach Medieval Lives on Tuesdays from 5:30 to 8:10 p.m. This class will focus on one of the most politically fluid and ethnically diverse periods in Italian Medieval history. During this class students will learn the history of the time period from firsthand accounts of leaders, heroes, prophets and villains. Students will examine the Medieval life from a verbal and physical point of view, and they will interact with several artifacts and replicas from Italian Medieval times. Gulf Coast Theater Experience will meet Thursdays from 5:30 to 8:10 p.m., and William Koolsbergen will lead this class. This course will teach students how to evaluate a performance, and students will attend five local theater rehearsals and productions where they will critique each performance.
