Winter 2012 Courses at ANTS

Andover Newton offers two January sessions. The “extended intensive,” where courses meet for half the day over a two-week period of time, takes place from January 2-13. The “super-intensive,” where students take a three credit course over just one week, is from January 17-21 (Tuesday through Saturday after the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday). 

Andover Newton will offer two overseas Border-Crossing Immersion experiences in January. Professor Brita Gill-Austern will lead a group to Israel and Palestine. Prof. Beth Nordbeck will lead a group to Ghana. Students will also have the opportunity to participate with seminarians from theological schools around the country in Appalachia through our AMERC partnership. Students should already have registered for Border-Crossing Immersion courses; please contact Ms. Jennifer Shaw .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) with any questions.

“Extended intensive” courses include many options with our renowned full-time faculty. Prof. Greg Mobley will teach “Preaching Boot Camp” and Prof. Mark Heim will teach “Passion and Atonement” in the mornings of the extended intensive session. Dean Nancy Nienhuis will teach “When Home is a War Zone,” and Prof. Bill Herzog will teach “Theological Themes and Human Dilemmas in Film,” during the afternoon sessions.

“Super intensive” courses blend infusions of learning with meaningful relationship-building among participants. Those who seek both learning about ministerial leadership and a retreat-like atmosphere of reflection and interaction should consider “Leading from Within: Spirituality and Leadership” with Dr. Margaret Benefiel. Please contact Dr. Benefiel at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) and register for this unique opportunity (note: this course begins Friday evening, Jan. 13).

Andover Newton will also host two scholars from Princeton University during the Super-Intensive session. LiErin Probasco will teach “The Religious Lives of 20-somethings,” and April Armstrong will teach a History course on “Jewish-Christian Relations in America.” These two courses give students an opportunity to dive deeply into topics of interest with guest scholars who bring special expertise.

To learn more about these courses, or to discuss how they might fit into your programs of study, please consult the Catalogue online, speak with your advisor, or direct questions to the Dean’s Team via Ms. Jennifer Shaw, .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
