Certificate in Theology and Interreligious Engagement (CTIE)
The Certificate in Theology and Interreligious Engagement is a post-baccalaureate conjoint certificate that is intended to provide university graduates with a general university-level foundation in theological and practice-based approaches to religious pluralism and interreligious engagement, through the exploration of religious texts and histories, spiritualities and practices, and theologies and theories of religions.
The main program focus of this certificate is to provide the necessary academic foundation for those working in multi-faith contexts as well as those who are interested in professional development - as, for example, hospital or school chaplains, social workers, etc. The program offers flexibility to address relevant personal interests and professional contexts.
