Religious leaders, civic leaders, and educators are uniquely positioned to help cultivate an informed and engaged citizenry. At the Religious Freedom Center (RFC), our academic programs are designed to train participants to skillfully negotiate issues of religion in the public arena. We provide students with the opportunity to cultivate and share in a learning environment that bridges a diverse array of geographic, cultural, and religious landscapes.

Our blended learning (online/onsite) courses are perfect for busy adult learners. We also offer:

  • Certificate Programs
