Summer Term 2011 registration deadline looms

The clock is ticking on the May 27 registration deadline for Summer Term at Sterling Divinity Quadrangle 2011, which features courses across a variety of fields, including pastoral care, theology, Bible, history, music and the arts, preaching, and contemporary issues.  Summer Term stretches over three five-day sessions, June 6-10, 13-17, and 20-24.

Last year’s experiment in making registration as easy as possible through an online credit card/check process proved successful, and so that option is again available this year for registrants with access to the Internet.  For those without Internet access, registration can easily be accomplished by calling the Summer Term registration desk at 203-432-6550.  Complete information about Summer Term 2011 is available online at http://sdqsummerterm.sites.yale.edu/.

Most courses run for five days in half-day sessions and cost $325. However, for those who cannot spend five days in New Haven, several shorter workshop sessions that run over just two days are available at $140:  a “theological sampler” exploring recent developments in theology; a course offering church leaders a chance to reflect on the integration of theology and practice in tough times, including how to manage and talk about money in a time of tight budgets; and a course on adolescents aimed at adults working with teenagers in parishes and schools.

For current Yale students and 2011 Yale graduates, tuition is greatly reduced, to $75 for each course.

Five-day courses offered, among others, include “Body and Soul: 21st Century Issues of Sexuality Religion, and Ministry,” “Jesus in the Popular Media,” Calvin, Calvinism, and Modernity,” “Jonathan Edwards as Pastoral Theologian,” “Jesus and Paul on Poverty and Economic Justice,” “The Letter to the Hebrews,” “Getting a Word In: Writing About Faith,” and “Christianity and Virtue Ethics.”

For the first time this year, dormitory rooms in Yale College will be available in addition to other housing options.
