Department of Theology and Religious Studies
Religion and theology are about the stories people live by. Never has it been so important to explore the significance of these stories to understand our past and chart our future. Our degrees open doors to many different career paths and provide key skills and perspectives for addressing the challenges of our time.
We focus on Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and secular worldviews. Join us in thinking through how these intersect with social justice, technological innovation, and climate change as well as philosophy, sociology and history.
