Philosophy/Religion

The Philosophy and Religion major affords students an opportunity to inquire into, clarify, and, most importantly, think about fundamental human values and problems.

Program Description

By providing a range of courses that covers both traditional and modern aspects of philsophical and religions thought, the major gives students a firm grounding in the literature of each area. A particular strength of the program is that it offers the student a broad background without sacrificing in-depth experience of specialized expertise.

A philosophy and religion program gives students a unique preparation for a variety of situations, e.g., pre-law, administration, business careers, the para-professions, communications, and human services. In addition, it provides a good background for a number of church-related vocations, including counseling, youth ministry, and Christian education, to mention a few.
