Religious Studies Major

The study of religion is an interdisciplinary field that will prepare you for a career in a number of professions or vocations.

What You'll Study

Religion is an integral part of our society, shaping both individual ways of life and entire cultures. In the Religious Studies program you'll learn the many religions of the world and different methodologies of studying a myriad of belief systems.

View religion through a new lens and open your eyes to different ways to interpret the world. You'll gain an appreciation for the history and culture of religion, and courses will allow you to join the discussion on important moral, ethical and political issues that arise.

If you want a career in the ministry, counseling, religious education, social work or any field that requires a liberal arts background, the Religious Studies major can take you there.
