Calvin Seminary offers this short-term, online course designed to support your learning and ministry needs amidst the ongoing pandemic.
In this course, you’ll gain practical knowledge about racism and xenophobia in America today and critically discern its impact on COVID-19. You’ll explore the ways that theology and politics work to support or dismantle current racial disparities. You’ll develop faithful anti-racist responses to our present moment and recognize patterns of racist practices, structures and ideologies.
You can choose to audit the course or enroll for credit.
