The Theology, Ecology, and Food Justice Program educates students, ministers, and practitioners to tend to communities in holistic, restorative, and sustainable ways. Throughout their coursework, students examine the complex and interrelated challenges posed by poverty, ecological degradation, and food insecurity through theological, biblical, and interdisciplinary studies. This program prepares students for work in congregational ministry, nonprofits, government agencies, and the public sector.
