  • Student news - Heather Patrick, a graduate student in the final year of her MA program, reflects on her program and accomplishments
  • Alumni profile - "Mark Graham: Languages of the Ancient Near East Master"
  • Japanese Program news, including "Jet Santiago's reflections on the Kyoto Field Study"
  • Notes about an innovative experiential learning course "Stories from the field: Indigenous Ceremonies and Healing"
  • A preview of two upcoming travel courses - "Korea Field Study: Summer 2006" and "Reformation Course: Germany 2017"
  • An introduction to the Department's new faculty member, Dr. W. Rory Dickson
  • Highlights from the Spring Institute: "Public Religion in a Secular World" and the launch of the Axworthy Distinguished Lecture

It's well worth the read!
