Study tours provide participants with in situ experiences that enliven and enhance their learning. All study tours are led by renowned experts who guide participants' learning in ways that optimise the cultural, social, historical and geographical context within which they are located. Participants deepen their knowledge and understanding immersed within the environment in which history has played out, or one in which faith in action has shaped a modern society.
The course at ACU appealed because it covered such a broad range of challenging and thought-provoking topics. It also offered the opportunity of a four-week study tour to religious sites in Israel, Jordan, and Palestine, which was a real drawcard for me.
That trip was an outstanding, fascinating experience and it had a profound impact on me. It’s made me engage in a more global debate around religion and politics and given me a far better understanding of how different religions interact.
I often share stories and insights from my trip about the ways people of different faiths live together, sharing a common humanity.
