Religious Studies

Religious Studies provides students with resources for an appreciation and analysis of religion.

Religious studies majors:

  • Appreciate and analyze religion.
  • Investigate sources, historical development and contemporary practices of religious faith.
  • Gain a sympathetic appreciation of others' beliefs.

You'll develop skills in communications, critical thinking and problem solving. These skills are valued in entry-level positions in theologically-grounded professions, as well as in careers in education, communications, social services, business and health care.
