About the Major

Religion is a powerful force, with both positive and negative consequences. Religion majors develop the basic tools to understand the diversity of religious global phenomena and to interpret their cultural, historical, philosophical, psychological, and sociopolitical contexts. Students receive a truly interdisciplinary training and find themselves well prepared for advanced degrees in the humanities, social sciences, law, education, journalism and social services.
