Columbia Announces Changes in Curriculum


Interview with Dr. Rodger Y. Nishioka
Benton Family Associate Professor of Christian Education

A committee of faculty and staff have worked for three years to bring about the most significant changes for the seminary’s curriculum in nearly 30 years. The new curriculum launches with the academic year 2014-15 beginning in July. Following the second full year of the new curriculum, the faculty will assess what changes need to be made both in the near and the long term. Vantage magazine sat down with committee chair Dr. Rodger Nishioka to learn more.

Vantage: Rodger, thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule. I suppose the first thing most people will want to know is: what do these new curriculum changes offer our students?
