Christian Spirituality is an online course taken over three months, using Cliff College's online learning platform.
Today's world has a renewed interest in spirituality, with a rise in the number of people who claim to be ‘spiritual but not religious’. In this context, the rich heritage of Christian spirituality is a resource for the church’s mission and ministry, providing tools to support and sustain faith today.
This course, Christian Spirituality, introduces students to key theories, movements, figures and practices relating to spirituality in the Christian tradition. The course enables students to explore contemporary trajectories in spirituality – such as the environment, health and wellbeing – that can be approached from a Christian perspective.
This course will be available from 29 April and is taught in ten sessions over ten weeks, with a further five weeks to prepare and submit your assessment. The first and last sessions are live seminars which you will need to attend either online or onsite at Cliff College; the dates for these sessions will be available in the coming weeks.
The other eight sessions are designed for independent study and are made up of video content, reading, written tasks and other creative activities to help consolidate your learning. These can be done at any time in the week that suits you. We recommend that you allow two hours of learning for each session, plus time for reading and assessment preparation.
Throughout the course you will have opportunities through scheduled online meetings to check in with Cliff College staff, discuss your learning and experience of the course, seek guidance on assessments and ask any questions you have.
This course costs £360, including access to all teaching materials and tutorial support throughout your course.
