In the wake of the misunderstandings and undercurrents of Islamophobia that seem to be more prevalent in U.S. society lately, church leaders and laypeople are invited to take a one-month intensive online course on Building Interreligious Community, beginning on October 18.
The course is part of Claremont School of Theology's initiative to provide life-long learning opportunities through a series on one-month online intensives on topics designed for church leaders and laity in search of professional and personal enrichment.
Claremont is the UM flagship seminary for the West Coast.
A second course on Leading in a Changing World also begins Oct. 18.
The courses, designed and taught by Claremont faculty, will be offered fully online and open to all students. No admission process is required. Learning resources and questions for online conversation will be posted weekly, with an expected student time commitment of approximately five (5) hours per week. The classes have limited enrollments of 15 students per class, so reserve your seat today.
For those seeking continuing education units, each course carries 2 CEUs and/or a certificate of completion. The tuition charge per course is $200.
