A Powerful and Persistent Phenomenon

Religious Studies Minor

Religion has played a central role in virtually all civilizations and cultures. Throughout history, religion has expressed humanity’s deepest questions, such as how to explain human suffering and injustices, as well as the true meaning of life. While technology and science have changed our view of the world radically, religion persists. We still find religion everywhere, in film, in popular music and in our own neighborhoods. We discover religion at the center of global issues and cultural conflict. No matter what your beliefs, religion is a phenomenon that calls for better understanding.
