Summer School 2019

The Sophia Centre Summer School 2019 for the MA in Cultural Astronomy and Astrology

The MA has been running summer schools for over a decade and has developed a successful model that comprises a balance of academic discussion and debate, enjoyable social activities and crucial interaction between students and tutors.

The Summer School is open to all students of the MA in Cultural Astronomy and Astrology, all PhD students associated with the Sophia Centre and all MA Alumni. Also by invitation to special guests.


Sun 14 - Wed 17 July (finishing at lunch time) 2019


University of Wales Trinity Saint David in Lampeter, Wales

The annual summer school is our chance to come together, socialise and study. The precise time table is always finalised at the last moment because it depends very much on which students are attending, and therefore who is giving presentations: we try to give any students who are attending and have conducted research projects a chance to present their work.
