Inside Religious Studies

Individuals who enjoy insightful conversations about history, beliefs and tradition will likely find a religious studies program to be interesting and valuable. While some choose to enroll in religious studies programs because they hope to learn more about their own faiths or educate themselves about the religions of others, others hope to pursue religious vocations.

Education Information

Depending on what career you want to pursue upon graduation, there are a variety of different certificate and degree programs. Typically, Christianity, Judaism, Islam and Buddhism are the primary religions explored in a religious studies program. A major in religious studies allows students to examine and analyze the beliefs of different cultures throughout time. Additionally, students consider extraneous factors that may have impacted those beliefs. In this way, religious studies can be considered anthropological, as well as spiritual.
