Summer schools now accepting superheroes, pilgrims

Whether it’s studying superheroes, taking a pilgrimage through Northern Spain, or learning how to use multimedia tools in ministry, Canada’s Christian institutions for higher learning are providing a myriad of different summer courses this year.

Classes are being offered by schools such as McMaster Divinity CollegeRedeemer University College and Regent College, among others.

At Redeemer, “the courses are part of [the school’s] overall mission to provide a Christian university education for a broader audience,” says Tim Wolfert, director of communications.

The school is launching three new courses this summer which are meant to target students who wouldn’t usually be able to study at the university, such as those who work full-time.
