SPACE

SPACE logo is a golden compass on a field of stars.

The mission of the SPACE program is to provide numerous and varied opportunities for personal enrichment through learning. SPACE modules are designed to be academically serious but fun, focused purely on the love of learning and the joy of studying the material. SPACE provides fully online access to a serious but low-impact arena for learning, whether you are interested in building a systematic course of study or just pursuing eclectic interests.

Signum University believes in connecting learners with teachers, and with each other! SPACE modules, like all Signum classes, are based on real-time, online small-group discussion sessions. Our modules each last for one month and typically meet twice a week for an hour-long interaction under the direction of the module’s preceptor. Each module provides eight hours of class time.

If you have any questions about the SPACE program, please reach out to [email protected]

Step 3: Wait for Confirmation

  • If you chose a Confirmed module, the Communication Center will affirm your registration and put you in touch with your preceptor
  • If you chose a Candidate module, you will hear by about the seventh of the month before it runs whether your chosen module received enough registrations and has become Confirmed.  If it did not, you can choose one that did become Confirmed or hang on to your Token.
