Religion and Conflict (Certificate)

The certificate program in religion and conflict is of particular interest to students pursuing careers in journalism, law, policy work, diplomacy, the military, public advocacy, publishing, education, ministry or other fields in which an enhanced understanding of religion and conflict is becoming increasingly vital.

A regional component provides students specific regional knowledge of how religion has been implicated in human conflict. Required coursework in at least two different regions fosters a comparative understanding of the dynamics of religion and conflict in historical and global contexts.

A political component explores how religion influences or is influenced by matters of state, law, government or other dimensions of political life.

A cultural component provides students with an understanding of how religion operates as a powerful force that impacts and intersects with expressions of human identity, thought and culture.
