Starr King School for the Ministry Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (1)
It is my honor to recommend Starr King School for the Ministry. This university's joint program of Masters of Divinity (from the interfaith perspective) and Religious Leadership for Social Change allows for the study of a variety of religious traditions with the intention to use the degree to effect positive social change. Analysis of the readings are with an emphasis on understanding the writers bias not simply on regurgitating the content. There is also an emphasis on experiential learning which may take you to holy centers around the globe. Though religious studies can seem like an abstract degree this program is grounded in multiple options for practically using the degree such as becoming a chaplain. The opportunity to provide religious guidance in settings such as hospitals with knowledge such as the variety of nuances of oppression and privilege equipt students with real tools for positively conditioning their environment. The low residency program option allows students to travel in for intensives, skype into classes as well as attend immersions abroad. The flexibility of this program really appeals to me as a nomad and busy traveler. It is a privilege to attend this school and I implore any who are inspired by this vocational calling to check us out.
