Students interested in learning about Hispanic theological perspectives are invited to apply for the Hispanic Summer Program to be held June18 through July 2, 2016 at the Oblate School of Theology in San Antonio, Tex. 

The program supplements and enriches theological and ministerial education with academic courses and other activities that directly address Hispanic history, ministry, and theology. It offers students the opportunity to take an immersive three-credit graduate course in a small-class setting and participate in a variety of community-building activities.

As one of the sponsoring institutions for the ecumenical program, Duke Divinity School can offer the program to up to 10 students for the reduced rate of $425 ($800 for Ph.D, Th.D, and D.Min. students), which includes 13 days of classes, room and board, and round-trip airfare (a value of $2,800). The location of the program rotates between the program’s 39 sponsoring institutions.

The Hispanic Summer Program also includes a program for non-Hispanic faculty and administrators, called “Through Hispanic Eyes.” For four days during the regular program (June 26-29), up to 12 non-Hispanic faculty and administrators of sponsoring institutions will gather for dialogue, workshops, and exchanges with the entire faculty and student body of that summer’s program — sharing meals and other activities with Hispanic colleagues and the mostly Latina/o student body. The cost is $500, which includes airfare, lodging, and meals.
