Biblical Study and Travel Program
The Biblical Study and Travel program brings students into the world classroom, providing them hands-on encounter with non-literary sources that have implications for how we understand biblical texts. Students visit historical and spiritual sites that have meaning for Christian heritage, but also for other faiths and cultures.
