Online Courses

During the spring 2008 term, United offered its first online course. The seminary expects that, in time, a reasonable portion of its course offerings will be available online on a regular basis. Most of these courses are likely to be hybrids of face-to-face and online experiences, as is this first one. The number of on-campus meetings required is minimal, with the result that anyone with access to the Internet can access the course. The seminary’s aim is to provide online offerings that match the high quality of its traditional classes, so further offerings will appear slowly. As they become available, they will be highlighted on this page.

Online Course Offered in the Fall 2010 Term

CH161-02 Orientation to the Older Testament: Pentateuch and Former Prophets
Carolyn Pressler

This course orients students to critical study of the Older Testament and introduces students to the history, literature, and theologies of the Pentateuch and selected books from the Former Prophets (Joshua-Kings). Emphasis is on a dialogical model of interpretation, which takes seriously both the biblical texts in their contexts and the experience of the interpreter in her or his social and religious contexts.

This course is an online version of CH161-01. CH161-02 meets on campus two weekends, Sept. 24 & 25 and Dec. 17 & 18. The Friday meeting time is 6:00-9:15 PM, and the Saturday meeting time is 9:00 AM-4:00 PM. PLEASE NOTE: Participants in this hybrid course must be prepared to log on to the course using high speed Internet at least three times per week. Students for whom this is not possible are advised to take section one (CH161) of the class, which meets Tuesday afternoons, 1:30-4:45 PM.
No prerequisites, 3 credits
