Ensembles

Joining a Music Department ensemble is an enjoyable, hands-on way of exploring music you might not encounter in any other way, guided by faculty who are experts in the field. It can provide you with an experience that is intellectually stimulating, aesthetically rewarding, and fun to do with your friends.

Mission & Goals of Religious Studies

When you study the world's religious traditions, you learn about the histories, literatures, practices and beliefs that have shaped human societies. You study rituals and festivals that organize perceptions of time and place, disciplines that develop modes of attention,  and ideas of holiness, justice, love, and beauty through which human beings have expressed their highest ideals. You develop tools to understand the complex ways that people across history and around the world oppose oppression, justify violence, understand their bodies, and give meaning to their lives.
