Our religious landscape is changing rapidly. The Focus of this certificate is how to engage in dialogue with, and how to minister to, such a world in ways that promote interreligious and interspiritual understanding and appreciation.
Students may choose from an array of courses, some of them focusing on a single tradition, such as Quakerism or Islam, others of them seeking to bring traditions into conversation. Yet other courses attend to new expressions of the spiritual life, both within and beyond historical communities of faith. The program consists of six courses and can be completed within two years. Courses may be taken entirely from the study of Spirituality, or students can choose up to two electives from across the curriculum.
