The challenges and opportunities of our world seem so new. They scroll past on our glowing screens and call from our earbuds. They feel overwhelming. Intractable. But you know they aren’t. Because you know that we are the challenge, and the opportunity. The same can be said for religious traditions. They often know more about us than we know about ourselves. And that’s where the Master of Arts in Religion comes in. It teaches, trains and mentors students to take religious wisdom into new situations, new neighborhoods. It exchanges dogma for insight. And it takes religious legacy and transforms it into psychological, social and cultural intelligence. You become the future of religious practice and research by introducing ancient knowledge to the modern world – and translating these gifts for the 21st century.
