Why Study Religion?

To explore how humans understand and experience the sacred, the self, and the world.

To celebrate the complexity and variety within religious life and thought.

To cultivate skills of reading, speaking, and writing.

To share in the delight of asking--and even risking answers to--questions about the meaning of life and the sources of human and social transformation.

To experience the knowledge that arises from an appreciation of the place of religion in human experience.
