The Department of Religious Studies has as its primary objective the academic study of religion. Students are given the opportunity to examine important questions of meaning and value in a personalized setting with internationally-recognized scholars.

Our courses explore living religious traditions, especially the Judeo-Christian faith and its relevance for contemporary life.

The study of religion can aid in developing skills for the analysis of human problems and the means for their solution. It also promotes ethical awareness and commitment.
