Religious Studies helps 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. Our curriculum is among the most international on campus and many majors study abroad, bringing their experiences to capstone seminars and mentored research projects. We prepare you for a diverse world and a variety of professional paths including law, medicine, and non-profit leadership.
