Department of Religion and Culture


We focus on the ways religion works in human lives around the globe and investigate how factors such as geographical region, multicultural settings, and popular culture shape communities and traditions. Our faculty guides students to think critically about human relationships, value diversity, and communicate clearly, skills necessary and highly sought-after in a wide range of careers.

We have a strong research faculty filled with award-winning teachers. They have built a reputation among students for being approachable and engaging. Our large and growing research portfolio covers everything from popular culture to religious studies.
