Executive Certificate in Interreligious Cooperation for Peace
About this programme
This programme provides participants with the opportunity to take a course focused on interreligious and intercultural studies. It complements the Globethics.net executive certificate programmes in applied ethics. Certificates are aligned with the European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET).
Is religion causing or provoking violence or is religion building peace?
There is probably no other societal phenomenon in our times that creates more controversy. At the same time, it is certainly valid that all religions provide enormous potential for peaceful cohabitation and cooperation.
The entry level starts with a Master’s Degree in Arts and Humanities or equivalent. Students are expected to possess a minimum English language-proficiency of B2 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The self-assessment grid2 provides potential participants with an overview in case of unfamiliarity with this framework.
