Thirty-six McMurry students traveled with Dr. Philip LeMasters, professor of religion and director of the Honors Program, to tour Coptic (Egyptian), Malankara (Indian), and Eastern Orthodox churches in the Dallas area on November 14. 

Sponsored by the Honors Program, the trip exposed students from courses in Christianity, World Religions, and Art History to Christian communities from the Middle East, Asia and Eastern Europe. 

“This kind of experiential learning experience broadens the horizons of our students and helps to prepare them culturally and spiritually for the challenges of living in our increasingly globalized society,” Dr. LeMasters said.
