The Department of Humanities and Religious Studies offers an
integrated approach to the study of world cultures across history.
In our courses, students undertake an interdisciplinary study of
core ideas, ideals, and values. Religious Studies focuses on the
beliefs and practices of the world's religions and their
relationship to history and culture. The study of both Humanities

students acquire the concrete analytical, research, writing, and
organizational skills essential to their professional careers. We
offer a degree in Humanities with an optional concentration in
Religious Studies; we also offer minors in both fields. The
Department offers a wide-range of courses in global religions and
humanities but also offers courses in American culture, popular
culture, and film
