Undergraduate Programs

A major or minor in Theology and Religious Studies prepares you for the demands of a rapidly changing world, and reflects the university’s justice and service-oriented mission.

Religion is one of the most powerful social forces shaping the world of the 21st century. An understanding of religious traditions, a passion for social justice, and sensitivity for cultural difference can help you navigate our religiously complex world.

Our programs explore human religious experiences in different cultures, so you can become familiar with major religious traditions, values, and symbols. You are encouraged to explore the religious dimensions of your own life; appreciate the role of religion in life, draw conclusions about human dignity and rights, freedom, and responsibility; and develop awareness of the relationship between faith and justice.
