The Religious Education concentration, which is intended to educate scholars in the interdisciplinary field of religious education, integrates theology and interfaith studies with educational theories and practices available in both GTU and UC Berkeley. Particularly from a critical pedagogy perspective students are expected to develop competency in theology (or their own religious traditions) and the literature and practices of education as well as relevant social sciences such as education, sociology, and psychology. Integrating scholarly reflections and practical educational concerns out of their own religious contexts, students will develop their ability to research and teach religious and interreligious education in both academic and pastoral contexts.
