With the end of summer upon us, we can look back on another successful Theology Summer School at Christ Church, University of Oxford. For over 20 years, the Graduate Theological Foundation has enjoyed an affiliation with the Oxford Theology Summer School and its organizing body, the Oxford University Department for Continuing Education. Having sent several hundreds of students to the summer school since the mid-1990s, we find that students create indelible memories and enjoy unforgettable experiences during their time in this annual program as they study under distinguished scholars from the University of Oxford and other prestigious institutions of learning in the UK. Many letters and comments of praise were issued during and following this year’s program, the theme of which was “Christian Spirituality and the Human Vocation.” For students interested in returning to attend another Oxford Theology Summer School or attending for the first time, more information is available on the GTF website through the Academics tab, then the Oxford and Rome Programs page.
Theme for 2016: “Healing a Wounded World”
Dates: July 31-August 6 (week one) and August 7-13 (week two)
Location: Christ Church, Oxford
Students may attend one week or both weeks of seminars and earn credit toward a degree at the Graduate Theological Foundation or apply credit earned toward a Non-Project Option. Students enjoy the opportunity to experience life and study on the campus of Christ Church, one of the 37 colleges and halls that make up the University of Oxford. Details on the 2016 program such as tutors, topics, fees, and more, will be available by early spring on the website of the Oxford University Department for Continuing Education.
