How it Works

We offer a number of condensed (or "intensive") courses through the year.These condensed courses typically last only 1–2 weeks and range from 1 to 3 credits.

Our best-known condensed courses are our Summer Programs (40+ courses from May through early August) and our January Intensive (one week of condensed courses immediately before the start of the Winter Term). From time to time we also offer condensed courses during our Fall and Winter reading breaks.

Like our regular courses, condensed courses can be taken for credit towards a graduate degree or simply audited for personal enrichment. Students auditing courses are not required to complete assignments. For more information on the difference between credit and audit, visit our Choosing Courses page.

The length and format of our condensed courses varies. Many take place in a standard classroom setting, typically requiring students to spend 3 or 6 hours in the classroom per day. Others (such as our travel courses) focus on an off-campus immersive experience. Students usually have six weeks to complete the assignments, but this varies from course to course. When taking a condensed course, you should review the syllabus carefully to ensure that you understand the course dates, format, and requirements.

Upcoming Condensed Courses

Fall 2022 Reading Week Intensive

The Inklings: Fantasists or Prophets? (ARTS 560)
Malcolm Guite
Nov 21–25
1 or 2 credits

In this course we will look afresh at the writings of C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, Charles Williams, and Owen Barfield, and at the tenor and impact of these writers collectively as a group. We will explore how, far from being nostalgic or escapist they were in fact dealing prophetically with some of the most pressing themes and questions with which we grapple in the 21st century: How can we recover a spirit of awe and reverence? How can we resist the dominance of the machine and the reductive, mechanistic account of life? How do we return to a more chastened and reverent relation with nature and ecology? Can we recover the imagination as a truth-bearing faculty? Can we heal our divisions and rediscover the true meaning and importance of community and fellowship? Malcolm Guite will make the case for the Inklings as wise guides for our moment in history.

January 2023 Intensives

What is the Gospel? Implications for Preaching, Worship, and Discipleship (APPL 516)
Darrell Johnson
Jan 9–13
1 or 2 credits

What is the gospel, the 'good news' by and about Jesus of Nazareth? One of the presuppositions of this course is that although many who believe the gospel can answer the question to a significant degree, most of us have yet to fully appreciate just how 'massive' the gospel is. Thus we will seek to explore as much of the height and depth and length and width of the 'good news' as we possibly can in a week's time. And we will find the scope of our discipleship, ministry and worship freshly expanded and invigorated.

Seeking Sanctuary, Finding Shalom: Love, Community, and the Lived Experience of Mental Health Challenges (APPL 569)
John Swinton & Daniel Whitehead
Jan 9–13
1 or 2 credits

This course will provide a unique blend of theology and practice focused around the lived experience of people with mental health challenges. We will develop a hospitable interdisciplinary dialogue within which different dimensions of the healing process of mental health care can come together with a view to exploring the theology, psychology and lived experience of mental health challenges. The intention is to enable students to become faithful and hospitable carers and better theologians, who in a real sense continue the healing work of Jesus in their own spheres of vocation. Issues explored will include: depression, anxiety, psychosis, bipolar disorder, trauma, Christian community, healing, friendship, hospitality, the problem of evil, and the centrality of faithful interdisciplinary conversations that seek to care with rather than just for people living with mental health challenges.

Paul & His Letters (BIBL 576)
Paul Spilsbury
Jan 9–13
1 or 2 credits

This course is an introduction to the thirteen powerful letters attributed to Paul in the New Testament. Together we will investigate the Paul’s inspiring life of faith, and the life-transforming teaching contained in his letters. We will pay special attention to the issues raised when we seek to apply Paul’s insights to our lives today.
