Department of Ecology & Environmental Religious Studies
The goal of this department is to provide those seeking education or ordination from this seminary with the necessary core skills in reconnecting to the Earth from scientific, philosophical, and theo/alogical perspectives. Several courses in this department are designed to provide working knowledge to the religious leaders of tomorrow in Earth sciences. Further, students may elect to formally study:
- Religious Naturalism, an atheistic religious/philosophical system that blends science, psychology, and aesthetics into a cohesive sacred whole;
- Ecotheology, a dynamic theistic re-visioning of Christianity that merges science with traditional Christian thought; and
- Ecosophy & Environmental Ethics, a rich atheistic and diverse field rich that merges spiritual wisdom with critical examinations of ethics and environmental philosophical frameworks for a deeper connection to the Natural world.
