The School of Theology at the University of the South announced that it has created a May Term slate of courses open to alumni, students, and friends of the School. The courses offered will address topics that do not require a full course yet merit more attention than can be given in existing courses during the academic year. In this and in coming years, it will provide the opportunity for continuing education in conflict resolution, community ministries, leadership development, understanding addiction and dependence, and also to participate in travel study.
This year’s courses being offered May 15–26, 2017, are:
- Stewardship and Fund Raising, lead by Charles LaFond, St. Mark’s Cathedral, Denver, Colorado
- The Leadership of Jesus, lead by Robert Wright, bishop of the Diocese of Atlanta
- Dos Tierras: Faith, Politics, and Environment in Two Lands in Matanzas, Cuba, lead by Dr. Andrew Thompson, School of Theology
“The University as a whole is looking for ways to maximize our students’ educational opportunities in the off-time,” stated the School’s dean, the Rt. Rev. J. Neil Alexander. “For the School of Theology in particular, this time will give seminarians a chance to go deeper into courses of study that will round out their skills and enrich their futures in parishes and beyond. At the same time, I hope these offerings will be of interest to our alumni and friends.”
The three courses being offered in 2017 run the gamut from two- and five-day workshops to travel study abroad. See the School’s website for complete descriptions of the courses and their related online registration forms.
