Dr. Dyrness and Dr. Peace will intertwine their two courses, making it a single program. Consequently, everyone who goes on the trip will be required to take both courses. If you only want to take one of the courses, you will need to register as a participant for the second one.
Dr. Dyrness' course fills elective slots and also can be used as an emphasis course for the WTA and TA emphases. Dr. Peace's course meets the Spiritual Traditions and Practices program requirement for MAT, MATM, MACL, MAIS (2010); and it meets the following MA spirituality requirements: FSP, SP2, or SPIR.
