About Humanities & Religious Studies

Academic Programs

The Department of Humanities and Religious Studies offers an integrated approach to the study of world cultures across history. In our courses, students undertake an interdisciplinary study of core ideas, ideals, and values.

Religious Studies focuses on the beliefs and practices of the world’s religions and their relationship to history and culture.

The study of the Humanities can be a profoundly personal experience, yet students acquire the concrete analytical, research, writing, and organizational skills essential to their professional careers.
