Faith and Public Life Immersion
ONE WEEK INTENSIVE PROGRAM
for Upper Level Undergraduate Students
Faith and Public Life Immersion May 21 – 25, 2018
Based out of Wesley’s Center for Public Theology, the Faith & Public Life Immersion program is a week-long, intensive master’s-level course for select upper-level college students.
Wesley Theological Seminary’s Center for Public Theology is pleased to announce a new program which will introduce a select cohort of students to the intersection of faith and public life from a variety of diverse social, political, and theological viewpoints. Students will explore faith in the public square through visits with policy experts, public officials, faith leaders, and media representatives. These visits will be paired with seminar discussions of key texts in public theology as well as issue-based readings on relevant contemporary topics.
The Immersion program aims to equip students to understand the role of faith in public life by
- Preparing leaders in church and society for a robust public witness
- Developing students’ skills of analysis and communication
- Energizing, refining, and cultivating the rising generation of church and community leaders.
Eligibility and Credit
The Faith and Public Life Immersion is open to rising undergraduate juniors and seniors, open to all vocations and majors. Program participants will receive two hours of master’s level credit. This can be applied to a future master’s degree or be accepted through reverse transfer to fulfill bachelor’s degree requirements.
Interested undergraduates will need to submit an application by March 15, 2018. Students selected for the May 2018 cohort will be notified by March 30, 2018.
