Practicum 3: Technology

Course number: DEPS1203 • Credit hours: 1.5 hrs


Distance Education Course: Theology of information guides development of information technology solutions in Christian ministry.

Course Description: Is there such a thing as a “”theology of information?”” Is God even interested in our use of technology? The proliferation of ministry/church-based computing compels the wise Christian leader to consider the use of storage and retrieval of information within a wider context of careful planning and decision-making. In this practicum, students will be introduced to strategies for fiscally responsible use of information technologies.

Course Textbooks: Available on request.
