January Interim 2021

Title Description File type

Updated to 3 December 2020, 6:35 a.m.

Here is a revised/updated J-Term 2021 Catalog ("Virtual Edition") that includes enrollment limits through approximately 6:35 a.m. on the morning of Thursday, December 3. 

The following J-Term courses are NOW FULL:  Borderlands, Digital Worlds, Dismantling Racism, Islam in America, and Pine Ridge.

The only cross-cultural-eligible J-Term option left is the Un/Civil Disobedience in Hong Kong, which has plenty of room.

There is also room left in the Ecojustice and the Rural Ministry options for a few more in each. Otherwise there is room still in the few options that will meet this June or July 2021. Beyond that, you need to look to an independent study or a course from one of the other ELCA seminaries.

Further updates will be provided as additional information on course opportunities becomes known.

Submit your J-Term preferences using this web form on the MyWTS:   https://mywts.wartburgseminary.edu/ICS/Student/J-Term_Preference_Form.jnz
