In groups of 10-15 students with at least one professor as a guide, Western’s M.Div. students travel to other cultural contexts to experience the diverse character of the church’s witness and mission.
These 11-day trips present students with problems and opportunities posed by cultural differences, secularism, social fragmentation, religious pluralism, and ecumenism. The trips are taken during the J-term for both distance-learning and residential students.
Our students have been immersed in cultures such as:
- Chiapas, Mexico
- Borderlands (US/Mexico)
