Since 1975, this program has taught students the history, theology, ethics and scriptures of the Jewish and Christian faiths. Students develop a critical awareness of the relationship between Jews and Christians — and learn to address complex religious, ethical and social issues to promote justice and peace. Graduates are prepared for doctoral biblical and religious studies, or for any facet of interreligious and multicultural relations, dialogue and diplomatic encounters — from teaching to ecumenical administration to seminary. The first of its kind in the United States, this degree offers both a thesis and a non-thesis option.
