Religious diversity, along with debate around religious belonging, pluralism, and inclusion, has become an increasingly fraught topic in American public discourse and public life. While many scholars – particularly those at seminaries or those within fields such as comparative theology – have been concerned with such matters for many years, academic interest in the applied realities of religious diversity has remained a relatively niche topic. In light of this, I am interested in the intersection between the emerging academic field of “interfaith” or “interreligious” studies and its application to experiences of religious diversity beyond the classroom. In exploring these topics, I will argue that interfaith/interreligious studies can foster learning with wide civic relevance, and thus has implications for higher education beyond seminaries or religious studies departments. From there, I will offer a constructive framework for thinking about the learning outcomes of this emerging field, namely what I call “interfaith literacy.” I will conclude with a discussion of concrete resources for teaching interfaith studies to undergraduates at four-year institutions with these applied civic goals in mind.
