Welcome to Our Department!

Religion is one of the most powerful social forces shaping the world of the 21st century. At the University of San Francisco, we believe that an understanding of religious traditions, a passion for social justice, and sensitivity for cultural difference help students navigate our religiously complex world.

The Department of Theology and Religious Studies shares in the Jesuit mission of the University of San Francisco by examining both the human experience of the divine and the transmission of that experience through religious traditions, doctrines, and rituals.
