Actively interpreting the connection between the cosmos and nature as well as between the cosmos and human being are ways that cultures worldwide have dealt with issues of change - changes in individual lives or changes in one's society or nation.
Today we would call many of these practices astrology, and for the last 400 years they were seldom studied in depth in an academic or vocational environment. Few colleges had courses that critically examined how various cultures interpreted and applied their knowledge of cosmological events to human affairs, nor how these beliefs influenced the development of science, medicine, the arts, politics, literature, mythology and religion.
Kepler College was founded to change this picture.
Even though we no longer offer a degree program, our mission to change the educational landscape continues.
