Study of Religion

Students gain advanced knowledge of the literatures of particular religious traditions and the intersections of these with contemporary thematic and regional phenomena including values, ethics and human rights; modernity, science and secularism; visual culture, media and technology; language, rhetoric and performance; body and praxis; and theory and method. Students graduate with the qualitative and quantitative skills necessary for professional research and teaching in religious studies.
