Religious Studies Department

Along with other departments committed to the liberal arts, the Religious Studies Department shares in the task of cultivating a humane literacy that responds to the mystery and meaning of human life.

Cross-cultural, interdisciplinary, and critical perspectives inform a wide spectrum of courses that study:

  • Systems of belief and patterns of religious behavior
  • History of religious traditions
  • Function of religion in society
  • Forms of religious expression: sacred narrative, scripture, theological, and philosophical reflection

Students wishing to explore a major in religious studies are encouraged to visit our religious studies major page to view curricular requirements. Students who major in other disciplines but still seek in-depth study of religion may wish to consider a minor in religious studies.
