The following modules are oﬀered in the Autumn Semester. Please note that these modules are not worth academic credit and cannot be transferred to any other degree course or programme. You may choose to complete these modules for credit, and standard fees will apply (see our fee information on page 24). · MISSION AND VOLUNTEERISM promotes
personal development through understanding cultural diversity and deepens spiritual insight and self-awareness with studies in altruism and compassion. · PREPARATION FOR MISSION SERVICE
introduces the fields of cultural anthropology and the sociology of religion, focusing on cross-cultural communication and contextualisation. · MINISTRY AND CULTURE examines principles
of sociology and cultural anthropology, cross-cultural communication, ministry in cultural diversty, and contemporary cultural issues. · CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY introduces the
basic theory, approaches and application of cultural anthropology and an appreciation of the complex nature of all cultures. In addition, six seminars/workshops are delivered by personnel from ADRA-UK on topics such as International Development and Urban Ministries. Further workshops/seminars are delivered by personnel from the TED and include sessions on Christian Apologetics, Youth Alive projects, mentoring and relationships.
Through the Year in Mission and Service you will have the opportunity to progress your personal development and deepen your spiritual insight and self-awareness as you enhance your understanding of cultural diversity and missiology, altruism and compassion. You will gain a deeper understanding of the issues faced by diﬀerent cultures interacting in a ministerial context, and how to appreciate the complex nature of cultural diversity. These studies will prepare you for mission work in the ﬁeld, and the skills you acquire will enable you to manage projects sensitively in multicultural settings, communicate eﬀectively within cultures other than your own, and to identify appropriate responses to well-deﬁned and abstract problems within the mission project.
