Visit Group Website

In the Department of Religion and Classics, students explore the great, classical civilizations of West and East as well as the major religions that emerged from them.

Through the study of classical, biblical, and religious writings, either in the original language or in translation, students examine the beliefs, ideas, values, rituals, and traditions that have shaped Western and Asian cultures.

Our students also learn how the ancient roots of these religions and cultures continue to shape current events.
