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.
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.
One of the courses will use superheroes in the study of Christian philosophy. Students will look at cultural icons, such as Superman, Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman as they study concepts such as morality, knowledge, and reality.
