Interfaith Service and Theory

REL 332
Tree of Life


This course is designed for students seeking the Certificate in Interaith Studies though other students may enroll if there is space.  The syllabus is available here. Central to this course is service throughout a semester with a partner organization.  This service might take the form of an internship or volunteer work, or engagement in service learning, or work on solving practical problems, with a focus on interfaith contexts.  Students will select and define their own projects in cooperation with the instructor.  Because this is a small-enrollment class and students in the internship need to have a maximally flexible schedule, meetings for the seminars to be held throughout the semester will be arranged in the first week of the semester. There will be five Theory Modules throughout the semester and each module will normally include at least two seminar sessions.
