Religion’s Role in Helping and Understanding Others
Our Religious Studies program helps you explore the practices and beliefs of major world religions and world doctrines. Students who wish to pursue a career with a religious organization or non-profit, or are interested in in going into the seminary, will gain a solid educational base in this program. You will learn about critical issues in contemporary life, including the effects of globalization and the relationship between church and state. At the same time, you will discover how religion influences ethnic and race relations, politics and cultural developments around the world. As you navigate the Religious Studies program preparing for transfer to a four-year college, you will acquire excellent critical thinking, writing, discussion and research skills, plus a solid understanding of diverse cultures and traditions.
