Philosophy & Religion
Both philosophy and religion are concerned with the fundamental human questions, as well as the traditions to which they are attached. The Department of Philosophy and Religion is committed to creating an environment of dialogical inquiry both in and outside the disciplinary context. Areas of investigation include but are not limited to questions regarding the meaning of life, the ability to live ethically, and the human quest for the sacred. These concerns form the core of liberal arts education. The department maintains a major and a minor, but also offers a wide range of courses in the disciplines of philosophy and religious studies accessible to students of many interests.
