Studies in Religion

A powerful force expressing the human condition and shaping global events, religion is much more than your faith.

Our program in religion studies takes a different path than other colleges. We believe that the best way to explore religion is through a strong interdisciplinary approach that draws on faculty from all academic departments. This will give you an understanding of religion through myriad cultures, such as African American, Puerto Rican and Asian. You will learn how history has been affected by changes in religious beliefs, and investigate the literary, political and philosophical issues inherent in our faith systems. Such a wide comparative perspective will allow you to discover the nature of conflict and agreements in all religions, and between religious and secular points of views.
