The Religious Studies program serves as a powerful integrating center of a liberal arts education.
- In a world of rapid cultural change, religious studies gives you opportunities to think through your world view, your values, and you relationships to tradition.
- In a world in which intercultural understanding is of ever-growing importance, religious studies offers profound encounters with other people’s ways of imagining, thinking, and living.
- In a world of questions that must be treated synthetically, religious studies offers extensive practice in drawing insights from the arts, humanities, and social and natural sciences.
