Religious Studies is the academic study of religion through multiple modes of critical inquiry. It does not endorse a particular creed, tradition, or religious position; rather, it creates a context for collaborative exploration of academic and personal questions about religion, ethics and society. The department provides a broad, yet nuanced, understanding of the place of religion in human experience and practice. While for many students the study of religion involves a personal journey, Religious Studies cultivates an analytical stance that enables students to encounter global religious complexity fairly and equitably.
