The Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs sponsors this program through which students can earn a minor in the College or a certificate in the Walsh School of Foreign Service. Participants explore the role of faith and values across topic areas including international relations, comparative politics, history, and culture.
Religious pluralism and the promotion of interreligious dialogue is a core area of study at Georgetown.
Faculty and students across schools—including in the Department of Theology, the Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding, and the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs—explore religious traditions as they relate to one another and to wider cultural, social, and political issues around the world. Openness to religious pluralism has been central to Georgetown’s identity and mission since its founding. Georgetown is home to a vibrant multi-faith campus ministry and community and was the first Catholic university to hire a full-time rabbi and the first university in the United States to hire a full-time imam.
