School of Government and Economics ( HMT 255 )

The SCHOOL OF GOVERNMENT AND ECONOMICS is designed to challenge students to develop a biblical perspective of Government and Economics and how both spheres are related in a way that Government is the provider of a moral and legal frame for healthy national economics. Therefore, special emphasis will be placed in the understanding of the Biblical view of Government and Economics and the series of templates found in the Scriptures so that students can learn to discern History and the different ways of nations, the causes for the lack of correspondence in between political speech and economic realities of societies, with special mention of the Reformation and the Counter Reformation and their impact on economics as responding to different civilizations even today. They will be given an understanding of how the Old Testament templates relate to the New Testament and the role of a spiritual and moral frame and the importance of individual character in which concerns to entrepreneurs and political leaders. Students will learn about the national and international aspects of world politics and economics as they respond to the actual globalization process from visiting teachers, who have lived and worked in different regions of the world, as well as entrepreneurs and civil authorities, and how to respond to the challenges they present. They will also learn Biblical principles of International Relations impacting businesses and how they are vital for a nation´s international standing, As this is a Pilot School that will integrate into the new Degree Program being built around International Studies and Justice the idea is to create a more integrated school of lecture and process, group project work and individual study, due to the COVID 19 pandemic we are aware that doing an intensive and then for the students to have time to evaluate, process and articulate what they have learned as well as creating a paper/capstone project to deepen there understanding of how this relates to the world we live in as they wrestle with issues, dilemma's and current affairs. So this school as it is would be 8weeks seminar for those that do not want to do a capstone project and a 12 week school for those that would like to. As we have students from all walks of life, those that would like to go further for a degree or credits can do so.
