In the twenty-first century, religion has dominated the headlines as never before. Whether the subject is terrorism, gender identity, or the environment, religion and worldview differences are a central feature of life in our global society.
At the same time, virtually every professional field requires practitioners to make decisions and forge relationships in the context of cultural difference. Those who major in sociology, political science, business, and other fields will all find interfaith study a challenging and valuable asset for living and working in a global context.
