About the Seminar

Each summer, Baylor in Washington hosts an academic seminar in our nation's capital examining key issues at the intersection of faith, ethics, and public policy. These discussion-based seminars are designed for young professionals and rising academics seeking to integrate their beliefs with questions they encounter in their intellectual and professional endeavors. This summer, our seminar is entitled "Political Theology: What Does Christianity Teach About Politics?"
