Welcome to Religious Studies

Religious Studies involves understanding core values and beliefs that shape the world's cultures today. This involves examining the history of religious traditions, comparing the ideas and values of different religions, and understanding the function of religion in society. Students of religion use various theories from disciplines such as anthropology, sociology, psychology, history, literary studies, and cognitive science to investigate why people are religious, where religion comes from, and how it should be defined and understood. Religious studies is multi-disciplinary in nature, global in scope, and uniquely focused on one of the most intriguing aspects of the human experience.
