"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."
