Welcome to the Department of Religion and Culture!


Click here to see why you should major in Religion and Culture.

Our major provides students with a rich program of learning about religion and culture. Some of our courses focus on the ways religion works in human lives around the globe. Others investigate how factors such as geographical region, multicultural settings, and popular culture shape communities and traditions. This path of study trains students to think critically about human relationships, to understand difference, and to communicate clearly, skills necessary and highly sought-after in a wide range of careers.

For current course listings, go to the university timetable and search for our designators (RLCL, APS, HUM, JUD).
