Check out the following online courses for Fall Semester!
Open Registration continues until August 4.
H 570 Church History (2 credit hours), taught by Bradford Manderfield, Ph.D., will be held on Monday evenings, 7:00pm to 9:40pm, August 23 through November 8. This course surveys the development of the Church from the first through the twentieth century. Particular attention will be paid to the distinguishing characteristics of the Church in each of the major eras of its history, discussing key issues and tensions, important figures, and significant developments in Catholic thought, piety, and practice.
MT 6000 Catholic Social Doctrine (2 credit hours), taught by Kenneth Craycraft, J.D., Ph.D., will be held on Tuesday evenings, 7:00pm to 9:40pm, August 24 through November 2. Catholic Social Doctrine addresses the broad scope of how the Church lives in, and interacts with, the various cultural, social, legal, and political realities in which it finds itself. This course will begin with the biblical foundation of the Church’s social teaching, as examined through the great teachers of the Church. We will then turn our attention to the chronological development of Catholic Social Doctrine, from Pope Leo XIII’s groundbreaking encyclical, Rerum novarum, through Pope Benedict XVI’s Caritas in veritate. Our goal will be to articulate a coherent understanding of how and why Catholic Social Doctrine is the means by which the Church transcends and subordinates all politics to itself.
S 5600 Christology (2 credit hours), taught by Alan Mostrom, Ph.D., will be taught on Thursday evenings, 7:00pm to 9:40pm, August 19 through October 28. The purpose of this course is to introduce the student to Jesus Christ as seen through the lens of sacred scripture and apostolic tradition. This course includes a treatment of the historical development of the church’s knowledge of Jesus Christ through the ecumenical councils and patristic writers. Attention will also be given to issues such as the historicity of the gospels, Jesus’ self-knowledge as God and his mission as universal redeemer (soteriology). This course will also include a basic introduction to Mary the mother of God and her significance in relation to her son.
S 360 Christology (2 credit hours, certificate level), taught by Dcn. Michael Cassani, will be taught on Saturday mornings, 9:30am to 12:10pm, August 21 through October 30.

This course provides a basic introduction to the nature of church including its theology, mission, catholicity and relationship to the world. It will examine a variety of models for church as well as the relationship between local and universal Church.
