Colleges and universities offer a variety of courses on many, many topics. Obviously the primary curriculum a student should adhere to is the one that will let them graduate on time. However if you go to a university like mine, you get a little wiggle room to take some electives.
Why not take some of those classes to further your Pagan education?
A lot of literature or poetry workshop classes feature in-depth studies of mythology and classic stories. I am in a poetry intensive right now in which every student was asked to rewrite a famous tale. It made the students rethink their approach to mythology.
Biology classes often expand the student’s understanding of the natural world. While yes some Pagans morally object to dissecting animals, some courses focus on the theoretical and ethical dilemmas in Biology. Or you can talk to the professor before enrolling in the course and write a paper instead of dissecting.
There are many other topics that would enhance your Pagan learning: world religions, anthropology, civil liberties law, music, and history. Look at what your spiritual needs are and what you are interested in knowing more about. The goal is to expand the mind and look at the Goddess in a new way.
