Four sessions offered in online program

JOLIET, Ill.—The University of St. Francis (USF) Solutions Resource Center will offer a four-course, online certificate program in Franciscan Studies. Four sessions are offered, with the first beginning Sept. 22.

The program teaches participants about the origins and values of Franciscans, Franciscan spirituality and evangelical life and Franciscan tradition in art and literature.

“The program offered me the opportunity to broaden my knowledge of Francis and Clare and how Franciscan spirituality has influenced every walk of life since then,” said Janine Hicks, a USF administrator who completed the program last year.

Courses are four weeks long with start dates of Sept. 22, Oct. 27, Jan. 5 and Feb. 9. Students can enter and complete the courses anytime within their four-week run.

The cost of the program is $800 or $200 per course. To register, visit www.stfrancis.edu/solutions or call (815) 740-3600.
