Indigenous Studies Program Summer School

July 8th to July 19th, 2024

Indigenous Studies Program Summer School (ISP) is offered annually during two weeks in July. This is an opportunity for students who are often isolated from one another to gather, learn, and worship together.

Summer school is also an opportunity for intensive course work for students in the Indigenous Studies Program MDiv by Extension. ISP Summer School serves people from a wide variety of educational backgrounds, with an international and largely Indigenous faculty.

Indigenous Studies Program Summer School is holistic and interdisciplinary. Courses examine sacred scripture, theology, and philosophy through the lens of Indigenous thought. Courses achieve this by examining social data, literary-oral tradition and the artistic cultural aspects of Indigenous spirituality.

Our array of courses offers a wide range of topics for a critical mind and a curious spirit. Be ready to embark on a journey of learning, healing, and growth!
