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.
The Department of Philosophy & Religion is now accepting applications for the Gerald L. Potter Scholarship. The Department awards the scholarships annually to two outstanding students, one from the Philosophy Concentration or Pre-Law Concentration and one from the Religion Concentration. The scholarship amount varies but should be around $900.
To be eligible, you must: 1) have declared Philosophy & Religion as your major; 2) have completed at least 9 credits in the major; and 3) have minimum GPAs of 3.0 overall and 3.5 in the major. Students who will graduate in May or August 2017 are not eligible to receive the scholarship due to financial aid restrictions.
To apply, please go to https://und.academicworks.com/ and sign in using your UND username and password. Search for the word “Potter.” Applications are due by March 1, 2017, and scholarship recipients will be named by April 15, 2017.
