All Programs are subject to internal approval, minimum enrollment, and ongoing evaluation of local conditions, including enhanced health and safety reviews in light of COVID-19. All Programs, therefore, are subject to change.

Pilgrimage to Santiago

The Pilgrimage to Santiago is a four-week course in Spain. The French way of St. James is a museum of over 800k, where over a thousand years, pilgrims have hiked to what is thought the remains of St. James (one of the sons of Zebedee) in Santiago de Compostela. Santiago is credited with bringing the Gospel to Spain and the course will be a combination of the history of Spain, the history of the Camino de Santiago, art history, and travel as a Spiritual transformation. Students will walk the last 120k in the northern part of Spain over 10 days and will ultimately reach their destination in Santiago de Compostela where they will receive their "pilgrim" certificate. Learn more >>>
