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).
“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.
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.
