Major in Religious Studies
A major in religious studies is a great way to pursue a liberal arts education. As a Religious Studies major, you will develop core skills that are needed to flourish in today’s changing world: thinking carefully and critically, writing clearly, speaking persuasively, exhibiting an impressive awareness of cultural and religious diversity, working cooperatively with people who are different from you, understanding some of the religious causes of human conflict and violence, and cultivating your curiosity about matters of life and death.
