Religious Studies

Shakespeare Garden at Misericordia

The Religious Studies Program, which includes a minor course of study, is designed to engage students in the academic exploration of the nature and expression of religious experience from a variety of perspectives and contexts. Course selection includes the study of world religions, biblical criticism, spirituality, the study of the Catholic tradition in its historical, doctrinal and ecclesial contexts and inquiry into human experience as a resource for theological insight and development.

What Makes Us Different?

The Religious Studies minor presents students with a cohesive and flexible program of study designed to:

  1. Increase students' understanding and appreciation of the varieties of religious experience and expression.
  2. Address current theological issues.
  3. Correlate the students' pursuit of theological inquiry with the development of faith, religious belief, and moral responsibility.
