Course Description

Dostoevsky wrote: "The degree of civilization in a society can be judged by entering its prisons." Today, with nearly two million men and women in American prisons, we lead the world in incarcerating our citizens. This course will introduce students to the specialized skills needed for effective prison ministry. It will combine classroom study with in-prison ministerial experience and theological reflection. The goal is to form future jail and prison ministers for leadership and advocacy for a more humane approach to criminal justice.
