This dual degree program acknowledges the growing demand for professionals in religious leadership who have the knowledge and the skills to lead communities to respond to critical ecological and other social issues. Congregations and other religiously affiliated organizations are increasingly interested in sustainability concerns and seek leaders who can guide their efforts. Knowledge from the biological, physical, chemical, and earth sciences is critical to working professionals who design and implement sustainability practices. The humanities and social sciences incorporate information about spirituality, religious beliefs, and an understanding and appreciation of our relationship to the natural world.

This degree is a collaborative project shared by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Divinity.
