Yes, we know it feels like summer has just begun. And we also know you’re chomping at the bit to see Ascent College’s amazing 2023 Fall course offering!

We’ve mapped out the Fall lineup below. So many incredible professors to choose from!

We have several new course offerings, including COUN350 Grief and Trauma Counseling with Dr. Valerie Rance, which will focus on skills training for dealing with trauma, death, grief, and loss through a biblical worldview. Pastor Brian Biondi will join us to lead WOR211 Technology for Worship I: Music Production, which will offer training and application to enhance the production of creative worship settings utilizing midi, click tracks, in-ear monitors, and music production, recording, and playback software. We’re excited for Professor Mark Freeman to teach MIN322 Understanding Adolescent Culture, which will teach students to be savvy about technology and social media and how to address mental and emotional health matters for adolescents. Youth workers lead in a post-truth world, and we must know how to exegete culture and use God’s truth to address it.
