Integration of the Liberal Arts

How does a major in Religious Studies integrate the Liberal Arts?

A Liberal Arts education is an excellent investment into a student's growing ability to think critically about their world and to anticipate the inevitable change life brings with all its complexity and diversity. A major in Religious Studies challenges students to think critically about the question, "What does it mean to be human?" from the lens of global religious traditions. It is in the understanding of music, art, prayers, rituals, devotions, practices, written texts, lived experience that the revelation of the Divine is found in the human struggle for meaning and social justice. No one lives an isolated life. All of created reality is found in the study of religion. A major in Religious Studies is a great compliment to professional preparation. Knowing more about a culture, empowers you to empower others through service leadership.
