Course Schedule

*Registering for a Synchronous course requires regular attendance at the weekly 3-hour class session (either on-campus or via Zoom).

*A Flex course allows students to complete the entire course remotely (mostly asynchronously), but offers 1 or more in-person opportunities to come together for an exceptional learning experience that substitutes for some of the online work.

*Courses ending in O are completely online.

*A Hybrid means the course is both online and in-person. Some days students are required to be in person and some days they will be required to attend online.

Disability Studies in the New Testament

This course will focus on texts in the New Testament that portray and sometimes, stigmatize disability, while also promoting ableist interpretations that are both harmful and unhelpful. Students will analyze texts by contextualizing them historically and ideologically and take into account both ancient perspectives on the body and disability as well as modern assumptions around topics of disability. Student will learn to ask questions and reflect together on the pastoral implications of such literature. We will work collaboratively towards a biblical and theological understanding of disability that speak directly to matters of justice and inclusion. This is an exegetical course and it is upper level. Introduction to Gospels as a pre-requisite is required to take this course.

The goal of this course is to provide an overview of the emerging field of Black Muslim psychology which is grounded in the experiences, strengths, perspective, racial and sociocultural identity, and spiritual orientation of those who identify as Muslim and of Black/African descent. It acknowledges the rich ethnic, cultural, sectarian, and linguistic diversity of the Black Muslim community; and seeks to understand and enhance protective factors, mitigate systemic stressors and promote psychological well-being within the Black Muslim community. This course will discuss the unique and divergent experiences of Black Muslims and how these experiences influence their mental health, spirituality, and identity development. This material will highlight ways in which the community draws on spiritual and cultural resilience to resist oppression and embrace a positive sense of self, family, and community.
