Following this course of study, master’s students will have gained a broad understanding of the role of worldviews in the environmental crisis, and the prospects for change toward greater sustainability through changes in consciousness. Students will generate new tools for addressing ecological devastation, and the situations that lead to it, at a variety of personal and collective levels. Students will cultivate the ability to integrate multiple perspectives including those employed in environmental studies, religious studies, social sciences, and policy to engage in the complex dynamics of the current state of our world.
A degree in Ecology, Spirituality, and Religion will prepare students for a career teaching in academia, writing (journalism, novel, or nonfiction), or work with Non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Graduates can create their own non-profits or creatively jump-start current careers, integrating new ecological or religious models.
Graduates of the Ecology, Spirituality, and Religion program are creating the careers of the future, mediating between worldviews, linking religion to environmentalism.
