Philosophy and Religion

Philosophy

If you’re interested thinking critically and rationally about human problems of knowledge, existence, conduct, art and religion, then consider philosophy for your major. The courses will show you the great ideas of Western and Eastern heritage and encounter fundamentals of almost all other disciplines. The philosophy curriculum contributes toward a broad, general education in the liberal arts, the goal of which means a liberating of one's mind, to free oneself from conventional opinions of one's time and place. This major can prepare students for work in religious institutions, colleges and universities, museums, government and more.

 

Religious Studies

 You can learn about the personal, cultural and ultimate dimensions in life through religious studies. The classes introduce students to theistic and non-theistic religions and philosophies, East and West, and their distinctive world views through cognitive and social emphases. Religion courses aim to enable students to discover basic structures or essential characteristics of human religious experience through critical observation and thought. This major can prepare students for work in religious institutions, colleges and universities, museums, government and more.
