THEO 33936: Kinship on the Margins
The SSLP course, THEO 33936, is a fall semester course, even though you complete much of the work of the course in the summer. It is best to sign up for all your other courses first in case the SSLP course puts you in an overload of credit hours. You will need to sign up for THEO 33936, Summer Service Learning: Kinship on the Margins
Directed Readings for Second-time SSLP Students
If you are doing the Directed Readings option, ask the professor with whom you are working how to sign up for a Directed Readings or Special Studies course in the department. This course replaces the standard SSLP course, THEO 33936.
Overload of credit hours
If the SSLP puts you in an overload of credit hours, you will need to get permission from your Dean to register for the course. Permission for an overload of credit hours is not given until the fall semester. You will need to go to your Dean’s office within the first week of the fall semester to get permission and then register for the course. We will remind you of this in the fall.
THEO 20625: Discipleship Course
If you are interested in taking the additional three-credit course in the fall semester, Discipleship: Loving Action for Justice, taught by Prof. Margie Pfeil, this course does count as a second required Theology course. It is only open to students who have completed a summer service immersion and is a great opportunity to study in more depth the issues that arise over the summer. The prerequisite for this course is the Foundations course, the first required theology course –there are no exceptions.
Study Abroad Students
You need to sign up for the course in the semester that you return to campus. For those going abroad in the fall semester, you will take the course in the spring semester. We will offer the three facilitated small groups over three weeks, but not the workshop. For those going abroad for a year, you will join the 230 students when you return. You will have the option of the workshop or three discussion sessions over three weeks.
