Hello, PSR and GTU students.

A reminder:  I encourage you to have a look at the PSR summer course list below and at HTTP://WWW.PSR.EDU/SUMMER.   Registration for all courses opens April 9, at the same time as fall registration.  Financial aid is available - check with the financial aid office for details.

Of particular interest may be the MDiv required course, Intro to Ethics, which is offered online.  Other online courses include Transgendering Faith, and a great one for returning or international students, The Art and Technique of Effective Academic Writing.

Additional 3.0 unit courses cover Race, Religion & Politics; Hebrew; Community Organizing; and Environmentalism in American Religion & Culture.

We will also repeat our "Tuesday Night Talks" series of free public lectures.  Speakers will be: Hubert Locke, John Shelby Spong, Karen Yanemoto, Vivian Chavez, and Devin Zuber.

Contact my office with questions about PSR Summer Session 2012.

Blessings,
Laurie Isenberg
