Self Paced Learning Program: Theology
The intent of this School is to offer a program, not unlike a degree program, in Comparative Religion. Given this objective, a series of courses are listed below so that students will be able to fulfill their goal of undertaking a comprehensive and university-style Undergraduate degree program. The program is structured over a hypothetical four-year period, in which a student takes ten classes per year. The core classes must be completed and should be augmented by selections from the electives. Strategic Studies is a multidisciplinary study. It is therefore encouraged that students select courses from other Schools that have application in light of the direction they wish to take their studies. Students taking a Christian focus should feel free to round out their general understanding of Christianity by taking dominantly Christian courses that perhaps have a relation to the student's ethnic areas of interest from School: Theology
. Students wishing to emphasize religion from a socialogical standpoint in their studies are encouraged to take general courses from Topic: Religious Studies
. Students may notice that Comparative Religion has a strong overlap with Theology
, and Courses from that Department may make up part of a student's Course load.
Guidelines: for definitions of Courses, Classes, and Projects, please see the Templates page. Students should complete ten Courses per "year." All Core Courses must be completed. The student may round out their Course load with appropriate Electives. Appropriate would imply that they come from the "year" in which the student is studying at that time. While there is nothing to stop you from taking courses in any order you wish, it is recommended that courses be taken in some semblance of order. Upon completion of the full degree program... pat yourself on the back. Education is its own reward.
