May – June 2014
The BA Showcase is the premiere BA event of the year. The faculty-nominated student work will cover a wide range of disciplines, themes, and intellectual traditions. Project formats will include multimedia performances, artwork, and lively presentations.
The student presentations demonstrate critical thinking, global citizenship, experiential learning, and community engagement. Current and prospective students gain fresh insight into the coursework and creative environment that AULA offers.
Know someone interested in the BA program? Tell them about our Open House, held the same day. Prospective students can attend the BA Showcase, hear BA core faculty speak about the program, take a tour of campus facilities and classrooms, discuss the application process with representatives from the Admissions Office, and talk to BA students and alumni about the BA program experience.
Breakfast and lunch are provided. Free and open to the public.
Sponsored by the BA Program and Office of Admissions.
Join us for the 7th Annual Children’s Literature Conference and Horace Mann Upstanders Award, presented by the Education Department at Antioch University Los Angeles. Established in 2008, the Horace Mann Upstanders Book Award honors books in which the main character recognizes injustice and acts in a way to right the wrong. This award honors new children’s literature that best exemplifies the ideals of social action and in turn encourages young readers to become agents of change themselves.
