CONSEJERÍA Y SALUD

health

La Facultad de Consejería y Salud busca la integridad personal tanto física como espiritual, interdependientes y entrelazadas. Busca entrenar y movilizar a individuos para que respondan con enfoques cristocéntricos integrales de cuido para sanidad física, emocional, espiritual y relacional. Mediante una variedad de cursos y seminarios, los estudiantes reciben e imparten la sanidad de Cristo por medio de iniciativas de cuido, ministerios de consejería y familia, o bien una mezcla de los tres tanto en ambientes urbanos como en comunidades lejanas. La Facultad reconoce la interacción entre el poder de Dios y nuestro propio rol como agentes de esperanza y restauración de la relación con nuestro creador.

The UofN uses two types of credits, FLW (full learning weeks) and LCU (learning component units).

FLW credits are used with traditional residential courses and one of these credits requires a minimum of 50 hours of documented learning activities; these include our normal lectures, small groups, one-on-ones, etc.; and some of these activities are nonformal, in addition to the classroom activities and study assignments.

LCU credits are used for part-time programs like evening courses, intensive seminars, distance learning and other non-residential courses. Each LCU credit requires 25 hours of focused learning activities which can be spread over a period of time.
