Auditor/Surveyor Courses

An auditor (or surveyor) is someone who is taking a course simply for one’s own enjoyment and personal development, and not for credit. Please note that any courses taken as an auditor/surveyor will not count for credit in the future either.

Course Description

CHRI 6340 Christian Readings: Gospels
This course offers an in-depth study of the four New Testament Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. This will involve consideration of the world of the Gospels, their authors, their sources, their relationship to one another, and their respective theologies. CHRI 6340 is an upper-level core course, designed primarily for M.Div students, though the course is open to MAA, MATS, and MACL students for credit; the course is also open to auditors and surveyors.

CHRI 6313 Pastoral Care and Spiritual Formation
This course examines the integration of the life of prayer and the caring tasks of ministry. Classic writings in the area of pastoral care will be used with particular reference to the functions of ministry and the role of the devotional life in the performance of various ministerial duties. The course may also focus on the relationship between classic pastoral care and the therapeutic approaches of contemporary pastoral counseling.
