The Study of Religion

"If I went back to college today, I think I would probably major in comparative religion, because that's how integrated it is in everything that we are working on and deciding and thinking about in life today." -- John Kerry, U.S. Secretary of State, 8/7/13.

Our faculty specialize in Buddhist Studies, Judaic and Christian Studies, Hinduism, Islam, Religion and Conflict, Contemplative Studies, and Religions in America.
