Online and remote course offerings open to students from across the Maple League:

For the Fall 2021 sessions, we are pleased to offer a diverse roster of courses available through online/remote learning across our four institutions: the Maple League Shared Courses.

These courses offer an exciting and unique opportunity for students to expand their university experience. Explore unique perspectives, connect with new mentors and peers from across the Atlantic, embrace cooperation, and discover how we can do more together than we can do on our own.

Description: This course introduces Christian theology through doctrine and teaches students to live and reflect theologically. In order to ensure clarity and comprehensiveness we will be systematic in our approach, but our intent will not be just to develop a system of doctrine. Rather, we will also learn doctrine as the means to form, guide, and correct the community of disciples within the broader framework of Christian thought. This introductory course in theology is designed to provide an understanding of the theological task and Christian conviction concerning revelation and Scripture, the Triune God, Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit, creation and providence, human beings as the image of God, and the fall, evil, and sin as well as other key topics.
