Deepen your understanding of spirituality and ministry in culturally diverse settings
in light of Scripture and the Apostolic Exhortation Ecclesia in America.

and other crucial elements of the faith experience in shared parishes.
The Intercultural Ministry Workshop is also offered in Spanish.
The Neuhoff School of Ministry at the University of Dallas has been offering online
education since 2005. We were recently named the #1 Online Theology Master's Degree
Program by TheBestSchools.org, which provides an in-depth ranking of degree programs in colleges and universities
throughout the country. We strive to provide the same "theological education for transformative
service" in our online programs as we offer onsite. The same comprehensive curriculum,
rigorous coursework, pastoral application, and community of learning which we've been
fostering successfully for over 25 years are equally available to students participating
in the online format.
Intercultural Ministry online students participate actively in an online discussion
board, complete assigned readings and take exams just like our onsite students. Find
out more about our online courses.
Intercultural Ministry is being offered online this summer, staring May 15, 2016.

As we age, most of us ask ourselves, where has the time gone? Borrowing text from UD's Core curriculum, this spring semester's Galbraith Lecture will explore the difference between our own perception of time, and how the philosopher-poet Dante Alighieri viewed mankind's immortal clock, steeped in Scripture and in life.
