Language and Learning for Theological Education
The Summer English Language Program (CRW 540) is an intensive program required of all entering Theological School students whose first language is not English and who have not received a degree from an American university. It is a three-credit course that comprises a three-week course during the month of August and its companion course, a one semester course, CRW 541, during the Fall or Spring semester, depending on the semester of matriculation.
Participation in the program is an opportunity for students to deepen their critical thinking skills and to be prepared for a successful academic and community experience. It also enables students to become familiar with the rich diversity of U.S. culture and to become familiar with one of the world’s most vibrant cities.
