This program focuses upon the skills and knowledge needed to be a modern interfaith minister. By eliminating semester breaks and vacations, the course is equipped to concentrate in one year a solid, qualifying course in interfaith.
The program is provided as a series of monthly weekend classroom sessions at the Seminary’s office in New York City. Timely completion of monthly homework assignments is required. All students, at the end of the course, will be expected to attend a four-day retreat during which, among other activities, they will be given an oral examination based on the year’s studies. A thesis is also required. Ordination normally follows the day after the retreat.
