Interfaith Leadership in America

This course prepares students to consider and develop their own place as leaders in the interfaith landscape of the United States. We begin by mapping the interreligious history and landscape of America, exploring some of the world’s prominent religious traditions through the lives of their practitioners within our own borders--including on-site visits to various communities. We then define the concept of “interfaith leadership” through investigating the work of prominent interfaith leaders in America’s history. The third portion of the class asks students to consider the role of interfaith cooperation in some of the most prominent social issues of contemporary America. Prerequisite: THRS 117.
