The Department of Religion in the College of Arts and Sciences emphasizes cultural and theoretical approaches to the study of religion, and draws attention to the relationship of religion with literature, art, history, psychology, politics and philosophy. Students are encouraged to investigate both the religious dimensions of secular culture (film and music, for example) and traditional religions as cultural phenomena. The Religion Department offers the B.A., M.A. and Ph.D. degrees, as well as an undergraduate minor. It actively supports the interdisciplinary Religion & Society major and minor, and also contributes courses to many other degrees.
