How The Program Works
This co-curricular certificate requires completion of 4 weekly sessions and includes an experiential learning component that involves active participation in interfaith events and activities.
If you are unable to attend one of the session dates or would like to attend some sessions in a different format (in-person/online), we’ll be offering both in-person and online sessions in the same week for each term.
Please note that this workshop is part of a co-curricular program that includes multiple workshops and experiential components that all build on each other.
- Develop an appreciative knowledge for different faiths, religions, and spiritualities.
- Gain deeper insights on the diversity within each faith group and the common ground across faiths that bridge and build communities.
- Practice engaging in conversations relating to and intersecting with interfaith topics.
- Come away with strategies on how to navigate difficult conversations.
