What is religion? How can we study it? How is it shaped by collective and personal histories? How is it influenced by social and political dynamics? How is it expressed in art, cinema, media and popular culture? How does the study of religion help to understand current events and conflicts? These are questions you will explore in Religious Studies. Along with thorough training in methods used to study religion, we offer several areas of specialization: Spiritualities and Cultures; Religion, Politics and Public Policy; Religion in Antiquity.
