INSTRUCTIONAL COLLABORATIONS AT THE INSTITUTE FOR RELIGION, PEACE AND JUSTICE

Guest Lecturers

Guest lecturers offer a recorded lecture in each course that they are listed in and many of them spend about one or two hours with students via video conference during the week in which their lecture is posted. Students therefore get the rare opportunity to converse with and ask questions to many of these wonderful scholars and practitioners when completing the online Certificate in Religion, Peace and Justice.
