Religious Studies

James S. Cutsinger, Chair


The Department of Religious Studies offers a Bachelor of Arts degree with the option for an intensive major, which has potential for a degree “With Distinction in Religious Studies” upon graduation. The department offers both a major and a minor in religious studies for students seeking a broad liberal arts education focused on the study of a range of complex issues. Students engage in a dynamic, multi-disciplinary investigation that involves insights from fields such as anthropology, history, philosophy, sociology, and theology. Most of all, however,  the program of study embraces critical and careful thinking, honest analysis, and an openness to learning about new ideas.
