Interreligious Studies MA

At the GTU, resources abound for students interested in Christianity (Protestant, Catholic, or Orthodox), Judaism, Buddhism, Islam, Confucianism, Taoism, Hinduism, Sikhism, and other traditions, philosophies, and practices. In addition, academic centers focused on the arts and science provide additional perspectives to these areas of study. While many students come to the GTU to deepen their knowledge of a particular religious tradition, others seek to explore the connections between multiple traditions or to understand those traditions through a different lens. Students may be interested in Muslim-Jewish relations, or Buddhist-Christian dialogue, or the impact of the arts on spiritual experience. Students may want to learn how different religious traditions address a critical contemporary issue, such as climate change or religious violence.

Students interested in interreligious work may elect to affiliate with the GTU to pursue the MA with a concentration in Interreligious Studies. If you are interested in this concentration, please review the profiles linked below of the GTU faculty who participate in this concentration.
