Certificate in Faith and Health

Certificate in Faith and Health The certificate in Faith and Health provides an opportunity for the interdisciplinary study of health and health promotion practices as they intersect with various religious or spiritual traditions and practices. Through the integration of perspectives from a variety of disciplines in the health and social sciences, particularly those in nursing, public health, theology, and religion, students will develop theories and practices in which the personal, communal, and social dimensions of health intersect. This interdisciplinary perspective will provide students with resources to analyze the way in which faith, understood as constituted by a set of religious and/or spiritual beliefs and practices, may contribute to the promotion or inhibition of health of persons and communities from various religious traditions.

Students in the Master of Divinity (MDiv) and Master of Theological Studies (MTS) programs wishing to complete the certificate must meet the following academic requirements:
