Biblical Reflections on Sexuality & Gender Identity ( HMT 141 )

Sexuality, gender and gender identity are key to human identity, and significant for every person, nation and culture. This course seeks to examine Biblical perspectives on sexuality, gender and gender identity. It encourages students to draw on Biblical perspectives as part of a critical, empathetic engagement with a range of key approaches that, in the context of different cultures, shape current discourses on these topics. 


Discipleship Training School ( DSP 211 )

This school is an intensive Christian discipleship course beginning with an 11 or 12-week lecture/teaching phase followed by an 8-12 week practical field assignment. It is a prerequisite for all other courses in the University of the Nations, and also serves to orient and prepare all new Youth With A Mission (YWAM) staff. The DTS is designed to encourage students in personal character development, cultivating their relationship with God and identifying their unique gifts and callings. Cross-cultural exposure and global awareness are special emphases throughout the course, preparing the students to evangelize and disciple current and future generations, answering the call to “Go into all the world and teach (make disciples of) all nations.” (Matthew 28:19). The curriculum is in the following six major categories: God’s nature and character; God’s intention for individuals, peoples and nations; seeing all of life from God’s perspective; redemption, sin, and the Cross; God’s family - the Church; God’s world - His call and commission; the ministries of YWAM. Focused DTS’s: In some locations the DTS is offered with a particular focus, such as the Crossroads DTS (YWAM CDTS), Operation Year DTS, University DTS, Sports DTS, Arts DTS, etc. Credit will be given for this course with satisfactory completion of DSP 212.

Introduction to Communication & Cross-Cultural Media ( CMC 287 )

The audiovisual world can be thought of as a Church where the arts come together, where sounds and image are combined in order to communicate. The curriculum includes script, direction, production, editing and acting among many others. The purpose of this school is not only to show how to use different techniques to create audiovisual products, but also how to apply these tools in sharing the gospel. They can be used to communicate the values of the Kingdom of God in our society and specifically in places with little or no knowledge of Christ. Topics include: dramatic filmmaking, scriptwriting, documentary filmmaking, photography, editing, production, digital cinema, biblical worldview in arts and cross-cultural communication. This course meets the U of N Core Curriculum requirement for Communication. During the twelve week lecture phase, students experience and apply what they are learning in a practical way leading them to make a movie in the city, which is concluded in the end of the lecture phase. Besides that, there is also an opportunity to join a outreach phase producing a movie in an area less evangelized or in cinematographic productions with a local film-maker. We also offer a three months internship.

Introduction to Cross-Cultural Communication & Linguistics Seminar ( CMC 121 )

This seminar has the heart of training cross-cultural agents who will be able to communicate the gospel in different cultural contexts, especially to unreached peoples and those in need of eradicating biblical poverty.
