Spiritual Traditions Concentration

Our spiritual traditions concentration in the master's in interdisciplinary studies program emphasizes study of the cultural and scriptural roots, and personal and communal aspects, of the world's spiritual traditions. Special attention is given to the origins, literature, art, theologies and traditions of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism. Often overlooked or ignored in the academic setting, indigenous and earth-based world spiritual traditions are also explored.

If you want to examine spiritual traditions in an interdisciplinary format, this program is for you. Historical, literary, anthropological and other approaches are encouraged — talk to one of our advisers about what fascinates you.
