Our fall on-line offerings include innovative courses in Unitarian Universalist religious practices, transgender issues, environmental ethics, spirituality, and Buddhism. See Online Courses Fall 2012 for the full course listing.
Inspiring instructors and the stimulating on-line community formed among co-learners make our on-line courses a transformative learning experience for all involved. Our distinguished on-line faculty includes Dr. Barry Andrews, well-known religious educator and author of Emerson as Spiritual Guide and A Dream Too Wild; Rev. Sofia Betancourt, recent Director of Racial and Ethnic Concerns for the Unitarian Universalist Association now pursuing doctoral studies at Yale; Noach Dzmura, editor of the Lambda Literary Award-winning anthology, Balancing on the Mechitza: Transgender in Jewish Community; Rev. Chris Fry, poet, spiritual director and UU minister whose course on "Forgiveness" is praised as a life-changing experience by those who study with her; and Dr. Emily Mace, an emerging UU scholar of American Religious History and recent Ph.D. graduate from Princeton University.
The mission of Starr King School for the Ministry is to educate people for Unitarian Universalist ministry and for progressive religious leadership in society. We educate to counter oppressions, to create just and sustainable communities, and to cultivate multi-religious life and learning.
I treasure your support and warmly invite your participation in our vital educational work.
