Cross-Cultural Courses

Each year one or more courses including travel will be sponsored, enabling participants to experience the life and culture of another people. These courses introduce students to the role of context and culture in theology and in the practice of ministry through a first-hand cross-cultural experience and careful reflection upon it. Locations will vary each year and will range from international to border site to rural and/or intercity sites in the United States. Selected readings and discussions will raise questions such as otherness, enculturation of faith, communication, theological diversity, and so on. Travel will reinforce this learning and place it in demonstrable context. 3 semester hours.
