The School of Divinity reserves the right to change programs of study, academic requirements, and assignment of lecturers. The courses listed here are a sample of the courses offered in the School of Divinity. These courses, with the exception of some required courses, are not necessarily taught each semester or each academic year. Their availability is a function both of staffing constraints and student demand. While no guarantees about future scheduling can be made, students are encouraged to alert advisers and the associate dean of academic affairs to course needs or desires. An official list of courses offered in each semester and summer session is issued through the Office of Academic Affairs during the preceding term. Required courses are indicated by the symbol “R” following the course number and name. Course prerequisite requirements are indicated by the symbol “P” following the course name and number. Courses that require the permission of instructor in order to enroll are indicated by the symbol “POI.” Unless otherwise specified courses listed here count as 3 hours (3h).
Each semester, courses in the School of Divinity and the University are designed as meeting the area requirements in five areas:
- Cross-Cultural Connections (CC);
- Gender and Sexuality (GS);
- Race and Class (RC);
- Religious Pluralism (RP); and
- Science, Health, and Ecological Well-Being.
To fulfill the Cross-Cultural Connections requirement, students may complete one course with a travel component to a place outside the student’s home region. Courses vary each year. Details about each academic year’s courses can be found on the school’s website or in the course listings below.
