Interreligious Chaplaincy Program Tracks

The GTU's Interreligious Chaplaincy Program has two tracks: 

Track One is a 72-credit program comprised of a 24-credit Certificate in Interreligious Chaplaincy and a 48-credit Master of Arts in coordination with a GTU academic center devoted to the study of a religious tradition underrepresented among institutional chaplains (Islam, Judaism, and Hinduism).

This track may be pursued on either a full- or part-time basis. If part-time, the program must be completed within two years.

Track Two is a 24-credit interreligious chaplaincy certificate program that includes three credits for one unit of Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE). GTU students and graduates (MA and Ph.D.) are encouraged to apply. The acceptance of non-GTU graduates to the certificate program is at the discretion of the program director.
