Testimonials

Wilmette Courses are far better in many ways than any other courses I have taken anywhere else because of the materials and resources offered, and the staff excellence. And I say this in view of University Degrees and graduate studies I have previously taken and earned in Canada, UK, and USA.

The harmony of science and religion is something I have always taken for granted, but this course has given me a more intimate understanding of the nuance of feedback between the two.

Andres Elvira
California, Science, Religion, and the Bahá’í Faith (2019)

I feel much more hopeful about the future after this course. I learned that there is a way out of the mess we're in... I was also heartened to learn about the many people in the world successfully working on these problems in a spirit of global unity.
