  • Religion

    The academic study of religion equips students with both detailed knowledge and broad theoretical frameworks for understanding the diversity and power of religion in societies, cultures, and individual lives. Students acquire skills for engaging constructively and critically with the ongoing influence of religion -- an essential, yet often misunderstood, aspect of every civilization.
