LEARN MORE NOW

The Undergraduate Certificate in Creation Care & the Environment combines an understanding of earth resources, environmental risks and disasters, and ecological sustainability with a theological background in creation care, ecological perspectives of the mission of God, and environmental mission.

Our civilization is dependent on the exploration, exploitation and transformation of earth resources, most of which are non-renewable. The growth of the human population demands a constant expansion of urban areas, putting more constrain on the environment. Taking care of the non-human creation is not an option, it is a mandate that must be factored in every step of the way as humans obey the command to rule and subdue the earth. The Undergraduate Certificate in Creation Care & the Environment challenges students to consider God’s redemptive plan as inclusive of all creation, and to combine a scientific understanding of the issues with a biblically informed world view. Students are exposed to the merits of alternative energy and renewable sources and the importance of sustainability. The students are also grounded in the context of biblical stewardship of the earth and equipped to engage creatively in holistic mission that reconciles people with God, each other, and the non-human creation.

What Will I Study?

We offer the most comprehensive approach to studying the Bible & the environment in the mission of God.

The Missio Dei is the work of God in the world. In this course, students will develop a theoloical framework for understanding God and his work in the world through an ecological perspective, demonstrating an understanding of the divine purpose for creation.

Ecomissiology sees the mission of the church in terms of reconciliation at all levels, i.e. environmental care is fundamental to disciple making and discipleship. In this course, students will compare and contrast different ideas of ecomission and analyse how the church can engage in environmental mission.

Our civilization is heavy dependent on the extraction, transformation and utilization of Earth resources. These natural resources are not infinite, therefore the need for sustainable development. This course will cover the fundamentals of earth resources such as coal, gold, petroleum, mineral sands, and base metals, and geothermal energy. Special emphasis will be placed on the sustainable exploitation and utilization of these and other earth resources.

This course explores the nature of geological and meteorological hazards and their impact on society. Topics may include landslides, floods, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and severe storms.

This course will take a historical approach to make known how the theories of ecological sustainability and resilience have evolved over time; and clarifying the different concepts of sustainability and resilience while emphasizing on their relevance for ecosystem and human wellbeing.
