Our school year
In our system of School of Ministry, and School of Counseling, the student will take a total of 10 courses per school year. It is divided into 2 semesters of 5 courses per semester. In the classroom, the student will have exposure to practical instances or events that have relevant messages to tell regarding course content. The most motivating cases involve real people with real problems to solve. This is why we meet the student in an audience setting for live interaction between teacher and student. Studying multiple case studies focused on the same content allows students to formulate and test hypotheses. Our live interaction is used to strengthen critical thinking skills such as applying knowledge to a real setting, analyzing problems and developing solutions, evaluating reasoning processes or actions.
Students working in groups to complete a specific task or to work together over time to complete various assignments. The most productive collaborations involve a fair division of labor and relevant and complex projects that cannot be completed by an individual alone. Interdependence is required. For this reason, DTU prefers to interact live in our classroom setting.
