Thanks to a grant from Interfaith Youth Core and the Teagle Foundation, USU Anthropology and Social Work programs are currently developing an interdisciplinary Interfaith Studies Certificate that can be added to any undergraduate major. This program will blend classroom-based with practical learning opportunities so that students with an Interfaith Studies Certificate are ready to be change-makers and religious bridge-builders in whatever profession they prepare for. As a first step, we continue to invite faculty to compete for 8 mini-grants to offset costs for designing new courses or modify existing ones to meet proposed Interfaith Program guidelines. For an overview of the program, or to review the presentation that was shared at our first informational meeting, click here. For an updated list of potential courses that are proposed options for students pursuing the certificate program, click here. The first application deadline was October 24th, 2016 but we are reopening applications and will review these on a revolving basis for those who missed the first application deadline.
