There are two approaches to Porterbrook that we offer: Certificate and Concepts and Conversation
Enhance your understanding of God’s global purpose through lectures, activities, and selected readings. Receive individualized feedback upon completing weekly homework, personal response sheets and the semester project, deepening your understanding. If you are not interested in receiving credit, we recommend this as the best option for getting the most out of Perspectives.
CONCEPTS AND CONVERSATION [audit]
You receive the same teaching and lectures as the certificate level, and are expected to read one or two key articles a week and complete several personal response sheets during the semester to help you process the material. You will not receive a grade, but it will be recorded if you completed the level. No certificate for completion of Perspectives is given at this level.
