Religious Studies

Major, Minor

Degree: Bachelor of Arts

Religion – Western, Eastern and otherwise – is a vast cluster of cultural phenomena, including sacred texts, mythologies and theologies, moral codes, and every conceivable kind of ritual, which is best explored from the perspective of more than one discipline.

Union is the perfect place to study this inherently interdisciplinary field. The major in religious studies is designed to help students gather insights from anthropology, art, classics, history, literature, modern languages, philosophy, political science, psychology, sociology and other disciplines as they seek to understand this complicated and dynamic area of human behavior.
