View all THEO classes

Investigates one or more of the religious, cultural, political and psychosocial issues faced by Asian American communities, such as immigration and globalization, racial discrimination and stereotyping, acculturation and enculturation, and intergenerational tensions, and explores the ways in which such issues shape ministry and congregational life in immigrant, pan-Asian American and multi-ethnic churches. Also considers the distinctive contributions that Asian Americans are making to American Christianity and to the global Christian movement. Some sections of this course will focus on the students' needs to address their own family-of-origin issues and racial/ethnic identity formation; others will equip the students with the practical skills needed to assist others in doing so. May be repeated for credit up to 6 credits.
