PALMER THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY OFFERS TIJUANA TRAVEL COURSE

Palmer Theological Seminary is organizing for the 8th consecutive year a travel course for graduate students seeking to gain a greater understanding of how global issues affect our local communities in the US and viceversa, and we are extending an invitation to students to participate in this learning experience. 

The course entitled CHHM640 Ministry on the Borderline : Tijuana travel course will take place from January 10-18, 2015. It focuses on the interrelationship between immigration, economic disparity and community and family functioning.  We will be reflecting particularly on the most current immigration crisis of unaccompanied minors entering the US to try to understand what is happening and how it sheds light into some of the larger issues affecting immigration. Students are able to receive academic credit for the course via cross-registration at the Seminary and will be expected to cover travel costs in addition to tuition fees. 

For more detailed information please contact Dr. Mayra Picos Lee at mpicosle@eastern.edu

Over the years, students have reported these travel courses have been instrumental in helping them understand situations from a variety of perspectives and thus have contributed to preparing them to work among diverse communities in the US and elsewhere.

Please note that the deadline for registration for non-Seminary students is November 26, 2015.
