Interreligious Chaplaincy Program

The GTU's Interreligious Chaplaincy Certificate is a 24-credit program that includes one unit of Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE).

GTU graduates (MA and Ph.D.) are encouraged to apply, as are MA and MDiv alumni from GTU consortial member schools. We also welcome applications from students from other institutions with master’s degrees in religious studies, theology, or a specific religious tradition. 

Learn more about course requirements for the Certificate in Interreligious Chaplaincy.

Application requirements for the certificate program:

  • MA from the GTU, GTU consortial member school, or other master’s program in religion or a related discipline (such as an MDiv or MTh).  
  • Letter of recommendation from a peer in the spiritual care field, a religious leader, or a faculty adviser.

For non-California residents, participation in this program for a Certificate in Interreligious Chaplaincy via remote modalities may be subject to another state’s limitations.
