Laurel Kearns is the Professor of Ecology, Religion and Society at Drew Theological School. Her most recent work can be found in the Bloomsbury Handbook of Religion and Nature: The Elements (“Conspiring Together: Breathing for Justice”), Grassroots to Global: Broader Impacts of Civic Ecology (“The Bitter and the Sweet of Nature: Weaving a Tapestry of Migration Stories”), and Prayer Reimagined: From Praying to God to Praying with God (“Con-spiring”).
The Certificate in Religion, Ecology, and Justice provides training in understanding and analyzing the intersections of religion, ecology, and justice. Students explore how to promote faith-based environmental justice work both within and outside the larger church. Drawing upon the Theological School’s core curriculum, this program is available as a stand alone graduate certificate and may also be completed concurrently with a graduate degree for currently matriculated Drew masters students.
