About the ICP

The first of its kind, GTU’s interreligious chaplaincy program equips leaders to practice spiritual care among a diverse population, with emphasis on underrepresented communities among institutional chaplains. The program offers students who have previously earned a qualifying bachelor’s degree the opportunity to earn a Certificate in Interreligious Chaplaincy.

Chaplains wishing to apply for chaplaincy board certification must hold a certificate in chaplaincy and an MA degree. Apply for the 48-credit Master's program in coordination with any of the following: 

  1. The GTU Common Master of Arts in Interreligious Studies Concentration.
  2. Master in Arts offered by the GTU Centers: The Center for Dharma Studies (CDS), The Center for Islamic Studies (CIS), or The Richard S. Dinner Center for Jewish Studies (CJS).
  3. Master's degree through the GTU Member Schools and affiliates (concentrations vary – please click here for a full list of concentrations).
