major or minor in Theology and Religious Studies prepares students for the
demands of a rapidly changing world, keeping with the university’s justice and
service-orientated educational mission.
undergraduate major and minor programs explore systematically and critically
human religious experiences in different cultures, so that students may become
familiar with major religious traditions, values and symbols. Professors
encourage students to explore the religious dimensions of their own lives;
appreciate the role of religion in life, drawing conclusions about human
dignity and rights, human freedom and responsibility; and develop awareness of
the relationship between faith and justice.
