Spiritual care is a vital need across industries, including hospitals, universities, prisons, military, immigration, family and social services, disaster relief, airports, and corporations. This program provides the skills to effectively serve persons from diverse religious backgrounds in a wide variety of situations and life stages. Coursework will incorporate practical spiritual care and interreligious training, as well as counseling, theology, and ethics.
Graduate Theological Union ’s Interreligious Chaplaincy Program fulfills a requirement for board certification and equips students with spiritual caregiving skills and knowledge necessary to practice chaplaincy in traditional and non-traditional chaplaincy settings. The ICP works closely with the GTU's Centers for Jewish, Dharma, and Islamic Studies and with affiliate institutions to increase the competency of chaplaincy students in traditions underrepresented among institutional chaplains.
