The study of religion offers students an opportunity to inform themselves about the major religious traditions of the world and to think critically and constructively about religion as a dimension of human experience and a mode of human expression. The curriculum includes courses on major religious traditions, significant issues in religion, and methods of studying religion.
There is no major in religion but an emphasis in religion is available through the general studies program and a minor in religion is also possible.
Students contemplating an emphasis or minor in religion should discuss their academic program with a member of the department. A Bachelor of Arts degree field major provides an additional option.
