Course Information

The Luthien University offered by 3025 a traditional spectrum of education suited to those headed for civil or diplomatic services. Studies ranged from history and astrography to languages and the history of art.

The graduates from this University where not being primed for the high-paying jobs that graduates of Imperial Institute of Technology or the Noius Archipelagus Institute of Science would land. The graduates would become bureaucrats or lower-level members of diplomatic missions.

The students were chosen more for their ability to engage in cultivated discourse with outsiders or the less educated than for possible contributions to the ever-present goal of Kurita military dominion.[1]


In or about 2780, the university was founded by Dr. Paul Edwards.[2][3]
