Through reading, discussions, multi-media presentations, and site-visits, students will be guided toward gaining (or improving) an understanding of America’s current religious landscape, a conceptual grounding in the beliefs and practices of a number of America’s religions, some awareness of the internal diversity of these religions, and strategies for engaging this diversity—including an opportunity to clarify and articulate one’s own theological/philosophical position on the fact of religious manyness. Students will also explore a variety of forms and methods of leadership in religiously plural contexts. (This course is required for all students enrolled in the Graduate Certificate Program in Chaplaincy in Multifaith Contexts.)
