Religious Studies Department

Religious Studies is a multi-disciplinary enterprise that develops critical reading, writing, speaking, and thinking skills.

The study of religion involves work with related subjects, including language, psychology, folklore, folklife, history, sociology, philosophy, education, medicine, law, and social work.

Religious Studies is, therefore, excellent preparation for graduate school in any profession: law, medicine, business, government, education, journalism, communications, or the arts.

The Department of Religious Studies is particularly proud of its students who in the past twenty years have gone on to graduate programs in religion at such distinguished institutions as Harvard University, Yale University, Union Theological Seminary in New York City, Princeton Theological Seminary, and Drew University.

A Religious Studies major* is excellent preparation for work in a number of fields in which knowledge of religion is primary:

  • college/university professor
  • public and private school teaching
  • work for a particular Christian denomination
  • specific employment in the Roman Catholic Church as a campus minister, hospital minister, service coordinator, or church administrator

*This program is not accepting incoming students as new majors. The minor is open to all students.

For those who feel they possess a religious vocation, the Religious Studies major is an excellent preparation to become members of the clergy.
