Research: Multifaith Education in Seminaries
In December 2009, the Center for Multifaith Education released Beyond World Religions: The State of Multifaith Education in American Theological Schools, a first-of-its-kind study of how seminaries across the United States are dealing with the challenge to educate religious leaders for a religiously diverse world.
Each year, more and more theological schools are using multifaith education to prepare future religious leaders for a religiously diverse world. Yet beyond the work of a few high profile institutions, little is known about the state of multifaith education in theological schools across the United States.
Auburn Seminary has taken a step toward closing this knowledge gap. Between January and August, 2009, the study's authors surveyed 150 Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist and multi-religious institutions in America that train religious leaders, representing approximately one-half of the accredited theological schools in the U.S. The report creates a snapshot of the state of multifaith education in theological schools today. We are grateful to the Henry Luce Foundation for supporting this study. See the navigation menu at left for details about the study.
