Our comprehensive program includes studies in spirituality, scripture, history, theology and ethics. Through our coursework, you'll gain a better understanding and appreciation of the rich diversity of religious traditions practiced around the world. In addition, we offer you a forum for assessing the values, teachings and presuppositions that have shaped your core beliefs as they relate to meaning and purpose.
A career-focused discipline that prepares you for post-graduate or seminary studies as well as for workplace opportunities, religion builds skills in critical thinking and oral/written communication. In addition, it fosters intellectual curiosity, introspection and personal and spiritual development.
Personal attention, faculty collaborations and interdisciplinary opportunities are at the forefront of our program. You'll have opportunities to supplement classroom studies with self-directed exploration, including internships, independent study projects and study abroad travel.
An excellent companion field of study, religion is often chosen as a second major or minor.
Religion offers a variety of opportunities:
- College professor
- Foreign correspondent
- Social service
- Youth/campus minister
- Clergy/religious professions
Offered as a major and minor.
