University of Wales, Lampeter
The Sophia Centre
Sophia Centre for the Study of Cosmology in Culture

The Centre was set up with funding from the Sophia Trust and is located within the University's Archaeology and Anthropology department. It has a wide-ranging remit to investigate the role of cosmological, astrological and astronomical beliefs, models and ideas in human culture, including the theory and practice of myth, magic, divination, religion, spirituality, politics and the arts. The main qualification we teach is the MA in Cultural Astronomy and Astrology.

Much of our work is historical but we are equally concerned with contemporary culture and lived experience. If you are interested in the way we use the sky to create meaning and significance then the Centre may be the best place for you to study.

'The scope of the MA is as broad as possible and the syllabus is ground-breaking, unique and innovative. We study the many ways in which human beings have used the sky as a theatrical backdrop to tell stories and create meaning.' Dr Nick Campion, Director of the Centre for the Study of Cosmology in Culture.
