Each course has a focus theme—world religions, basic skills of interfaith ministry or a deep focus on a special topic that relates to ministry or spiritual care. Class content flows between didactic and experiential, theological and psychological, artistic and reflective modalities. Although each is different, all of the courses contain elements related to ministry, chaplaincy and spiritual care skill-building. Foundational courses include contextual learning trips (site visits) to a center of worship for further learning about a faith tradition, such as attending a Mosque, a Hindu temple, a Buddhist monastery, or a Synagogue.
