Program Description

Religion is one of the primary social activities of humankind. Its study involves a comparative understanding of the various ways different peoples, across time and space, have developed their religious ideas, values, systems, beliefs, rituals, and traditions in response to fundamental questions of human existence. Religious Studies offers a rigorous, systematic, and objective intellectual inquiry into various aspects of religions, their adherents and world views, their goals and expressions. It employs a wide variety of approaches and methods in order to understand the role of religion in human experience and thought. Courses in Religious Studies are for majors and for those meeting Humanities credit requirements. They are designed to be non-technical and to appeal to a broad range of interests.
