Philosophy and Religion

Raphael's "School of Athens"

The study of philosophy and religion, although separate disciplines, both deal with various ways in which human beings have tried to understand and give expression to the nature and meaning of reality, knowledge, the self, values and the purpose of human life.  

This website will introduce you to our faculty, major and minor requirements, courses, events and activities, resources, as well as study abroad programs beneficial to philosophy and/or religion majors and/or minors.
