Religion pervades culture. As a major source of values and ideals, religious practice forms much of how people live their lives. Therefore, understanding religion is key to understanding human existence. The academic study of religion is a multidisciplinary effort that requires investigation of history, culture, values, sacred texts, theology, philosophical thought, and cross-cultural study. This elective area of study is housed in the Department of Religious Studies.
