Ecology, Spirituality, and Religion PhD

The ecological challenges of the 21st century represent a crisis of values and consciousness. The pace of global change calls for an understanding of the process by which humanity came to this crossroads in planetary history. Graduate study in Ecology, Spirituality, and Religion allows students to cultivate the knowledge and wisdom to respond to the ecological crisis from integral and transdisciplinary perspectives.

Our program is centered in nurturing a community engaged in revitalizing the human relationship to the earth and exploring intersections of eco-spirituality, eco-justice, indigenous traditions, and eco-feminism. The world's religious and spiritual traditions offer deep insight into the human condition, along with profound teachings about how humans should relate to one another and to the environment. Students gain skills and insight to transform practices, worldviews, and consciousness in the service of a more just, sustainable, and flourishing planetary future. Core faculty are founders in the field of religion and ecology, shaping global dialogue linking spirituality and cosmology with ecology and sustainability.
