Dr. Sharon Henderson Callahan, Associate Dean for Academic
Programs & Student Life, describes in her own words what Summer
Quarter is like at the School of Theology and Ministry: "Our
summer session is always exciting and engaging! Research has
demonstrated that intensive learning often creates the opportunity for
understanding to last longer. We seem to start a new quarter almost
every week with visiting professors and practitioners inviting students
to immerse themselves in an exploration of new topics every week from
mid-June through early August. The student body shifts as the courses
shift. Community life in the McGoldrick Collegium and the local
restaurants and coffee shops increases networking and creativity. This
year students explored courses on themes of communities of faith,
conflict mediation, technology and gospel, working in the urban
contexts, spirituality, and professional identity as pastoral
counselors. The weather, the city life, Seafair celebrations, and
frequent conversations spice the summer with joy, expectation, and hope.
By August, we are all ready for the lazier days of renewal and
refreshment that allows us to ponder the intensive activity the summer
quarter demands." Here's a brief snapshot of a few of our summer courses:
