Since fall 2011, the School of Foreign Service has offered a Religion, Ethics, and World Affairs (REWA) certificate administered through the Berkley Center. The REWA certificate gives students an opportunity to explore the role of faith and values across topic areas including international relations, comparative politics, history and cultures.
Students take a total of five courses in three thematic areas as well as a capstone seminar with a major research paper requirement. REWA also features regular study breaks and a year-end colloquium where students present their work to one another and to faculty.
Admission to the certificate is competitive. Interested students should send a 250 word statement of interest, a writing sample, and an unofficial transcript to Assistant Director for Programs Melody Fox Ahmed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
