As Philadelphia welcomed Pope Francis to the city this fall, the College launched a Certificate in Interfaith Studies, a three-term immersive religious journey. Created by support from the Borowsky Family Foundation, and offered in collaboration with Drexel University Online, the certificate is available in two formats: a 9-credit online option, and a 12-credit on-campus option that culminates in an optional 1-credit travel course to the Mediterranean. The Foundation will subsidize a portion of that trip for up to 10 students, who will be named Borowsky Scholars. The three courses required for the certificate include Comparative Religious Ethics; Judaism and Christianity: Two Religions or One; and Coexistence and Conflict: Jews, Christians and Muslims in the Early Mediterranean. The first course, Comparative Religious Ethics, was also made available to the public free-of-charge as a massive open online course (MOOC).
