TMPS 7060 Education in Faith: Foundations and Practice (Fall/Summer: 3 )


Course Description

This course proposes theological, spiritual and pedagogical foundations for a participatory and empowering approach to faith-based education, pastoral ministry and service. Reflecting religious education as a mode of practical theology and concern for the spiritual foundations of Catholic education, the course invites participants to develop their own praxis of educating from and for faith. This is the purpose of the Church’s educational work in the world. However, it is also a responsibility of every Christian person and of every function of ministry and faith based service.

Comments: Summer 2018: This course will meet June 25-July 12, Monday-Thursday from 8:30-11:45 a.m. Note: Given the brevity of these summer courses, it is essential that students come prepared to engage in learning the very first day. To facilitate this, each course has 'Pre-Class' work to complete. This generally includes reading and often requires a written essay to be submitted before or on the first day of class. See the summer course webpage http://www.bc.edu/schools/stm/acadprog/summer/summercourses.html. This course will also be offered Fall 2018.
